No matter what is happening in our lives, we can take JOY in our salvation! We can walk in the assurance that God is with us in and through it all! Hallelujah!!
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!!
