“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The paralysis of our phobias and our preoccupation with things beyond our control cause us to cluster in caves of indifference that separates us from our mission of entering into kingdom ministry.

Our Independence 

July 1, 2016

This is from a letter written by John Adams to his wife Abigail. Dated July 3, 1776.
“The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”
May this weekend be filled with celebrations and special time with family and friends as we remember how blessed we are! May we remember all those men and women who have died to give us the freedoms we enjoy, and the men and women who continue to serve and protect our way of life. But mostly, I thank God for the favor He has bestowed upon our nation. We have drifted far from where we began, but God is Sovereign and worthy to be praised! I choose to pray over our country and our leaders. Pray with me and show the world what it looks like to love people the way Jesus does! Happy 4th of July Weekend!
