This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24
Only God can make a day! That is a truism I have heard from my Pastor a thousand times. Today, is the day we celebrate our Independence from the rule of Britain – thanks y’all. But let us never forget that day that Christ set us free from the authority of sin.
knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; 7 for he who has died is freed from sin. Romans 6:6-7
So today, as we grill out, chill out and have some summer fun. Let’s take a moment just to say, “Thank You Lord for the ability to live independent from sin and dependent on you Lord”. It is not a celebration for a day, but a celebration for everyday. Everyday God gives us, because only He can make a day, that is a power and authority worthy of celebrating – rejoice and be glad.
Happy Independence Day!
