Happy Fourth of July 2014

I am praying for a good and safe July 4th for all. It is a great day to come together and be thankful for the nation we live in. God placed each of us exactly where He wanted us to be. It is a weekend that we need to take a moment and reflect on the freedoms we have here.

Let me ask you a question. Would you want to live in a country that has less or no freedom? We have read about some of them. Some have even escaped from countries that don’t allow for the freedom and rights we enjoy.

Now think about this. What if I told you that you are not free? That you are entangled in self and sin and the cost is going to be greater than you could ever imagine. If you are not saved, if you have not turned over your life to Jesus, you are a slave. Don’t take my word, listen to God and His Word. Hebrews 12:1-2Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (NIV 84) and Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

See God wants us to be free from sin yet slave to Him and then He can pour out His bless in us. So today repent, turn from the chains of sin and be set free to obey Jesus.

Have a safe weekend, remember those that are serving, those that have fallen and have a great day racin’ in the SONshine. Hope to see you at a local short track this weekend.
