The freedom we have in the United States was built on prayer, faith, and a belief that people could strive to be more. Use this thoughtful video to reflect on the gift of independence and freedom we celebrate on the Fourth of July.
Watch Tommy and Eddie debate the significance of Independence Day. You probably had no idea that space aliens, general contractors and fireworks all play into the 4th of July. Eddie finally straightens out Tommy’s ideas. Great service opener.
We live in a Nation which has slowly forgotten the principles on which it was founded. We have lost our foundation of faith. We enjoy living in freedom, but have lost sight of where that freedom comes from. Our prayer today is for our Nation to return to its roots. Our hope is for America to remember its dependence on God.
Every year on July 4th we get together and celebrate our nation’s independence. But in John 8:31-36, Jesus talks of a different freedom. One that can only be found in Him. A great sermon opener for an Independence Day service.
Freedom, liberty. It’s something we celebrate, something we take pride in, something we have struggled so hard for and have so strongly defended. But true freedom, we don’t have to fight for, we just have to accept it from Christ.
