John 14:26:  “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”

Great words from this past year’s study of John, reminding us that we don’t need to have everything figured out.  The Holy Spirit will teach us what we need to know when we need to know it.  So quit worrying!

Romans 2:1:  “You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.”

Show grace today.  We are all sinners.  We’ve all done stupid things.  Forgive and forget as God forgives us.  Life it too short to hold grudges and judge others just to make ourselves feel better.

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.
