Thank you to our soldiers, past and present, who defend this country and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. After the holiday festivities, it seems like the summer days fly by with another school year fast approaching and a new season of change.

The Bible message is "The Greatest Freedom." Every 4th of July, Americans celebrate their freedom as an independent nation with parades, fireworks, BBQ's and remembrance of our history.
In 1776, the 13 British colonies in North America protested against the King of England by protesting against his limitations upon them. The American Revolution was the catalyst that led to Congress adopting the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, and the birth of America as an independent nation.
Over 2,000 years ago, the Lord Jesus cried out on the cross, "It is finished," proclaiming the believer's "declaration of independence." All of humanity is under the tyranny of sin and death. But Christ, the sinless One, took our place on the cross to die for all of our sins. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice out of His unconditional love for us. He now sets us free for all of eternity for those who trust in Him.
The apostle Paul wrote, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us". Romans 8 gives us this blessed assurance, "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.....For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death". We are to "stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free." (Galations 5:1) Our greatest freedom is freedom from sin.
As we pledge allegiance to the American flag and our many freedoms, may we remember as a nation that our strength is in unity not division, in love not hatred. Most importantly, believers all over the world can praise God for the eternal freedom that is found in Christ alone!
Scripture verse: Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free.
Wishing you all many blessings!
In Peace and Love,
