January 15 was the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Columbia, TN will host a march on Monday, January 21 to commemorate the civil rights leader’s contributions to this country. Dr. King was an example of courage, strength, and freedom. He wanted the very best for the United States of America and the world. He was a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. He understood the element of sacrifice for others and was willing to go to great lengths to show his love. Dr. King was a Baptist minister and had the ability to eloquently communicate a freedom message.
Dr. King’s message was rooted and grounded in Christianity. His help came from the Lord Jesus. It is known that he also utilized the philosophy of others, but through Jesus and the Church is where a person could immerse in the freedom message. Jesus proclaimed, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.”(Luke 4:18)
Dr. King became a drum major for this message of freedom. All of the suffering was worth it to him and he surely recognized that Jesus suffered even death for this just cause. Believer, Jesus has paid already paid the price for freedom. This freedom has reconciled all believers to Christ Jesus. Also the Scripture says, “In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”(Ephesians 3:12)
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
