Happy Fourth of July

We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalianable right; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness . . .

This is such a great day in our history to remember when our forefathers of this country came together to take a stand and declare their independence. It was not only political freedom they desired but freedom to serve God as they so desired. As we all know those freedoms are so precarious to us at this time as the changes in our government and the evil forces out their who do not want the Church of Jesus Christ to florish and proclaim the Gospel of the One Who Died for our sins. As it says in Romans 8:35-39 "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Therein lies our true freedom. Our freedom is in Christ and without Him we have no freedom.

Not only celebrate in merriment and festivities but also pray for our country and thank him for the freedoms we have at this time.

God Bless America!
