Summer Devotional July 4th, 2017

Happy 4th of July!!

Galatians 5:13:  “You, my brothers, were called to be free.  But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.”

On this day of celebration of Independence, let’s not forget who grants us independence:  God.  With our freedoms we are to do good, not harm.  We are to remember others and remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms.  Christ gives us the ultimate freedom in him.  On this side of heaven, God grants us individual freedoms to be used for His good.  Don’t take those (or Him) for granted.

    So true. We’d be a much better nation if we reached for love before hate. God before Satan. God bless all the veteran’s who believe in fighting for freedom. Something that’s so hard for me to imagine,but truly I’m grateful. God be with you all.

    Forgive me, Heavenly Father, for the times that I have lost my sense of urgency to live for Jesus. Use the Holy Spirit within me to arouse my passions to serve him with my eyes wide open and heart set on great and heavenly things. I know you can, and will, do more than I can ask or imagine, but please, awaken me to dream great dreams and imagine great things for your glory.
