“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.” Romans 6:22
Hello brothers and sisters at the United States! Thank you so much for reading this Matthew comic. I hope it can be uplifting for you. 🙂
Searching the Internet for USA clothes, I found Uncle Sam’s clothes many times but I wasn’t convinced about drawing it. Next, the Statue of Liberty came to my mind and I drew it. Now, about to post it, I read about it and I just learnt that it represents a Roman goddess. 😛
The Bible shows two conditions: slave of sin (result: eternal death) and slave of God (result: eternal life). Been “free” of one makes us slave to the other one. Only faith in Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection can set us free from sin and its eternal consequence. Freedom of sin through Jesus gives us eternal life and, meanwhile, we ought to obey God — that doesn’t means adherence to a “religious” set of rules (do’s and don’ts) but to know Jesus more each day to be guided by him to live in the freedom he gives us. 😀
Here is a link where you can learn how to gain this freedom through Jesus:

May God bless you all and I hope that the leaders of your country can receive wisdom from God to take good decisions for all of you! I’m a football (soccer) fan and if some of you watch football: congratulations for the Gold Cup win last week. 😉
