Today we celebrate our nation's 233rd birthday. We celebrate our freedoms and our rights as Americans. Remember and thank those who have fought for those freedoms. (Click here to view David Barton's account of when Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner.)
Even more importantly than celebrating our freedoms as citizens of this country, we should be celebrating our freedoms in Christ. If you have chosen to make Him your Savior, then although we are not to use our liberty in Christ as an opportunity to sin, we are free indeed. I have freely chosen to become a slave to Christ!
Praise God for our founders who decidedly birthed our nation as a nation under God and based solely on Biblical principles, and praise Him for His love, mercy and grace! I ask the Lord to have mercy on our nation now!
