If you live here in the United States of America, you know that July 4th means gathering together with friends and family for barbecues, picnics and, of course, FIREWORKS!
It's a time for celebrating our freedom as a country, but also a perfect time to celebrate the freedom Jesus Christ died on the cross for us to have.
Our God is a God of freedom and liberty, and those are some of the very traits our country was founded on!
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. ~Galatians 5:1 (NIV)
"Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" ~Psalm 118:5-6 (ESV)
Jesus said to the people who believed in him, "You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."~John 8:31-32 (NLT)
Praising God for the blessings he's bestowed upon us as a country, and praying that you and your family have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day!
