As we celebrate Independence Day, the 4th of July, remember what this day is truly all about. Remember the reason why we celebrate freedom.
God sent Jesus to bring us freedom. Jesus died for our sins and for our freedom.
We may come broken, guilty, and ashamed for the wrong we’ve done. By faith in Jesus we can overcome. We’re not perfect. We have flaws. Jesus came that we may have freedom; that we may have life. Surrender it all to God.
Today we have freedom to ask for forgiveness. We have freedom to be forgiven. God extends grace and mercy. Jesus paid the price so that our sins may be forgiven.
As we honor and remember those who gave their lives for this country, also give honor to Jesus who purchased our freedom by his death on the cross. Without him we would be lost.
The nation is in need of prayer not just today but every day. Pray for the nation, pray for those who lost their lives and those who lost loved ones. Pray for families and friends of the 19 firefighters that they find comfort, strength, and peace to overcome. Pray for everyone on this day. Keep them in your prayers today.
There’s restoration and freedom through Jesus Christ. For our sins, He made the ultimate sacrifice. Forgiveness is available through Him. Proclaim liberty and freedom.
Celebrate your freedom!
Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
Be blessed! -JD
Galatians 5:1 “It is freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” NIV
