Happy 4th of July!

Several good Revolutionary War Books out this year:

Heather & I usually always watch all or part of the John Adams miniseries each summer. If you haven’t seen it, you should. Good depiction of the events & characters leading up to America’s independence.


Reminded by these books  that the Declaration of Independence, signed on July 4th, 1776, didn’t automatically produce freedom. There would still be 7 more years of fighting until peace was signed with England on September 3, 1783.

Being a Christian means you’re free from sin’s ultimate penalty & we can experience freedom from sin’s power as we pursue righteousness through a relationship with Jesus Christ. But we’ll still battle sin & fight for this freedom as long as we’re on this earth – Pursue God & when we sin, seek his forgiveness. And remember one day, we’ll be FINALLY FREE from sin’s presence when we’re at home with God forever.
