Independence Day has always been an exciting time around our house. It is the day that our nation commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. The United States declared its independence from Great Britain and established itself as a nation under God. History is full of people who fought, died, lived, saved, struggled, labored, and served to establish our nation as the sweet land of liberty. My family celebrates my birthday on the 4th of July. But there is an independence that is greater than what our forefathers hoped for, and that is our choice, to say Yes! to God, and no to sin. Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is the greatest “Independence” of all. To fear God and serve Him forever. What a great price he paid for you and I. This 4th, keep standing on the Rock!
