Independence Day

Posted by Meredith Griffin on July 4, 2008

Happy 4th of July! Today is the day that this country, the United States of America, celebrates the signing of its Declaration of Independence. This document declared this nation’s freedom and independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. On this day, we view fireworks, eat way too much, visit with family and friends, and remember the blessings of our liberty as citizens of the United States of America.

I want to encourage all of you to use this day to remember our more significant declaration of independence and freedom; namely, our freedom from sin and death. Galatians 5:1 says,

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

With all that we will do today to celebrate our independence as a nation, let’s not forget that we should daily celebrate the freedom that was bought for us on Calvary’s cross. Enjoy the holiday and stay blessed.
