Independence – a word that indicates freedom from the oppression of a government or from serving others. It indicates our ability to be self sufficient.
Kids can’t wait for the day when they’re free of their parents’ reigns. Young adults search for ways to live on their own. As we age, we long for freedom from the natural process of aging. Being a Christian requires us to be good citizens and obey what our leaders have established as government even if we don’t always agree with what they do or say.
It is God’s will that we live as free people because of the price He paid for that freedom. Today we celebrate our independence as one nation, under God. Christian men and women through the ages have defended our country and its ideals, because of their love of freedom. May God continue to bless America and keep her safe, and may our true freedom be evidenced in our love for our God and our country.
Happy Independence Day!
