On July 4, 1776, thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England in the event which eventually led to the formation of the United States of America. Today it has become more of a holiday rather than a day when the final wording of the Declaration of Independence was decided.
In our history this remains one of the most significant times for our nation. To a lot of us it is a time to light fireworks and to enjoy a day off from work. It is much more than that. Many people died and gave up everything to see our nation freed from the tyranny of England. That is what I think we need to be reminded of.
We remember our history, and should be very thankful for such a great nation to live in. We should not allow a few to take away our rights that so many died to give us. This is the greatest nation in the world. So let’s take a moment and thank the Father of our Lord Jesus for allowing us to live here and to enjoy the freedom that only comes from Him.
Thank you, Lord, for the republic and for the freedom with which to enjoy it.
Just a thought,
