just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July! Stay cool and be well fed!
I think it is perfectly okay to be a Christian enjoy the day we take as a nation and celebrate our independence though I always appreciate what I consider to be the theme of Paul’s letter to the Galatians: Gal 5:1
τῇ ἐλευθερίᾳ ἡμᾶς Χριστὸς ἠλευθέρωσεν: στήκετε οὖν
καὶ μὴ πάλιν ζυγῷ δουλείαςἐνέχεσθε.
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.
Let us too celebrate our spiritual independence from our former way of life and bondage to sin NEW LIFE in Jesus Christ!
Remember, it is for FREEDOM that Christ has SET US FREE! Go now and proclaim that FREEDOM to all that they too may be FREE to live a new life in Jesus Christ!
