God Blessed America


"Now, the Lord is the Spirit, & wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, He gives freedom." 2 Cor. 3:17

As born again Christians we have the kind of freedom that can only be bought by the blood of one man. The blood of our Savior purchased freedom from the law of sin and death. He gave His life so that we might live. He freed us from all the bondage this world has to offer. He freed us from eternal damnation.

Today we celebrate our nation's freedom. We take time to honor the sacrifice of all the brave men and women who gave their lives for our independence.

But...Have you ever wondered WHY our country has prospered? There are many other countries who have also lost many brave souls for a great cause,.. yet their death was in vain. Why is our country so different?

"Now, the Lord is the Spirit, & wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, He gives freedom." 2Cor. 3:17

233 years ago our forefathers made a decision that would set forth a prosperous path for our country. 233 years ago they decided to give God the Glory for our independence. They decided to stamp God's name into the future of our nation. They made the decision to unite these United States of America as "One Nation under God." We are blessed because we welcomed the Spirit of the Lord into our country.

"Now, the Lord is the Spirit, & wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, He gives freedom." 2Cor. 3:17

This Fourth of July let us not forget the sacrifice of all the brave men and women who gave their lives for our independence, but more importantly let us not forget the reason WHY their lives were NOT given in vain. Praise the maker of Heaven and Earth you are able to live a life of abundance. Praise Him because you are FREE to do so! Praise our Heavenly Father for the ability to choose the God you serve.

Praise God because GOD BLESSED AMERICA!
