Galatians 5:1
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. (NIV)

Happy Independence Day!

 I hope amidst all the BBQ’s, ballgames and any other activity you may be participating in today, you take the time to remember just how important our freedom is and the price that was paid for it.  So many lives and so much heartache, and too often, so little appreciation.  Is it because we take it for granted or is it easier to put it out of mind that countless men have given their lives so we can have ours.  Each week as we prepare to go worship, think of the countless people who don’t have the freedom to worship.  As you do your devotions and Bible study, remember that many can only do so in secret.  When you complain about the president, remember why you can do that without being imprisoned or even executed.

Remember we are FREE to make the choices we make every day.

Remember to make them GOOD choices!

God Bless The U.S.A.

Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone I worked for all my life
And I had to start again With just my children and my wife

I thank my lucky stars To be living here today
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom And they can’t take that away

And I’m proud to be an American Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas From sea to shining sea

From Detroit down to Houston And New York to L.A.
Where’s pride in every American heart And it’s time we stand and say

That I’m proud to be an American Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

And I’m proud to be an American Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A. !
