As we celebrate our independence and freedom as a country on this day, may we also celebrate our freedom in Jesus Christ!!
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
“I would believe in their salvation if they looked more like people who have been saved.” [German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche ~ about Christians of his day]
Oh Beloved! Do we look like people who have been given a gift beyond any other gift – the gift of eternal life with our God?
When people look upon us – what do they see? Do they see JOY, PEACE, and LOVE…or do they see sadness, worry, and a countenance full of judgement?
When people overhear us – what do they hear? Do they hear words of LIFE, ENCOURAGEMENT, and LOVE…or do they hear words that tear down and criticize?
May we be a people who cause those around us to be drawn to the Love of God! May we truly be a people that SHINE with the Light of Christ in word and in deed!!
