Last month many people around the world became what many would consider fanatics. What was the reason? The World Cup.
The World Cup is the biggest sporting spectacle in the world. Thousands of people are attracted to this event. It involves teams from different countries playing soccer. During this time many fanatics stay home from work to watch their country play a game on television. The games produce passion, loyalty and desire in many people including myself. For many there was joy because their team won. For others there was sadness and anger because their team lost.
At the end of the game of life, will you be a winner? This was the question that was asked by a football coach a few years ago.
( Photo: Latin America winners of the Who’s My Neighbor festival soccer tournament.)
My question for us today is the following. Do we have passion, loyalty and desire for the things of God? Do we desire to be faithful to our Lord to be a champion before His eyes? At the end of our life on this earth, will we hear this? “His master replied, “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” Matthew 25:21
My desire is that you as a believer can continue to battle to win the game of life that you’re in. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12. Don’t give up! The conflicts of life will not overcome you. You belong to the team of Jesus Christ, He has never been defeated. Not even death was able to defeat Him. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37

Oppression, slavery, lies, disease and injustice are part of a person who is not free, you do not walk alone and always subjected to this pattern. These are the same qualities that our country was under the rule of England, until a man who took the lead and spread to the other person who suffered this attack on their lives, inspiring them to seek freedom, and out of all this oppression receiving leading them to have independence, forming a status where they had freedom with justice, peace, and joy same treatment.
We can tell you that this story is an example of another true story that already happened long ago Avia. Yes!, A leader who stood up to bring these same qualities, but until today many men or women have not wanted to admit it. His name is Jesus.
Being one day with other people who were watching determinedly took a parchment where he remembered these words Avian already mentioned but nobody paid any attention, and said the following “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord‘s favor. “Luke 4:18-19
The aim of Jesus is to bring freedom and liberty you can ask that? Freedom from sin, oppression giving, sadness and injustice. All this has already been declared for more than 2,000 years ago, this was signed and agreed with his death and resurrection, the problem that we have not wanted to accept him as our leader that leads to independence from sin. We have the opportunity to enjoy complete freedom in but we did not want to accept, so if you want to celebrate the Independía begins with our Lord Jesus.
On behalf of the Christian Voice want to wish Happy Independence Day.
We want to hear from you and be in contact with you, if you have questions, want prayer, counseling can write to our address that is described below, or by phone at (866) 279-1722 check us out on facebook.
