On this day, remember your freedom…
Your freedom to live in a land where you have a voice and opportunities.
Your freedom to love, serve, and worship your God.
Your freedom to attend school, get a job, raise a family, and own a home.
Your freedom to visit your local Starbucks and drink your favorite latte.
Your freedom to dress the way you want, read what you want, watch what you want.
Your freedom to read this blog.
On this day, remember the people…
Who have sacrificed their own freedoms in order to fight for yours.
Who have left behind their family and friends so you can stay at home.
Who have given their life so you don’t have to.
But most importantly, on this day, remember the greatest freedom you have in Jesus Christ…
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.
1 Peter 2:16
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
On this day…we remember.
Happy 4th of July.
