We enjoy fellowship with friends and of course fireworks!
This year I will be celebrating some of the many things that make this country great. We have experienced some history making decisions this past week, and whether or not you agree, we live in a country that allows each of us to express that opinion.
We live in a country where I am free to attend worship and pray to the One True God without fear of persecution. Earlier this year we were in a country where we were instructed to be cautious of our surroundings when sharing our belief in Christ. We were told to share in smaller groups and avoid large crowds where we might draw attention.
Yes I am thankful for the Red, White and Blue. I am thankful for freedom that came as a result of the ultimate cost of life for many. And while I am truly thankful, I am also mindful that I have a responsibility. A responsibility to something, no, to someone far greater than a country or a flag, but a responsibility to my Savior.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
As the fireworks light up the night sky, may I be reminded to allow the light of Jesus shine brightly through me in a dark world.
Happy 4th my friends. Shine brightly.
