A Joy-filled Independence Day

                Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Hope you’ve got plenty to serve at our 4th of July celebration!!!!

                        So often we let holidays come and go without really thinking about why we’re celebrating.  We should be thankful to be able to call the USA our home!  Yes, we have had and will continue to have issues and challenges; there are things that could be better.  But, instead of focusing on the problems, let’s think of all our blessings and get ready for a great big celebration of our country!

                Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Traditionally, it's a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to proudly fly the American flag.  Our country is known as the land of freedom and opportunity.

On this 4th of July, as we celebrate, let us also remember the freedom we have in Christ. Though today is our nation’s Independence Day, the Body of Christ’s Independence Day was the day Jesus died for our sins. And we can celebrate because He arose from the grave and will come again!  Do you have a personal Independence Day… the day you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior?  He wants you to come to Him and experience freedom in Christ.   

Psalm 116:16 says:  O Lord, truly I am your servant…you have freed me from my chains.”

Have a JOY-filled national and personal Independence Day!
