Jesus is looking for us to be like Him not other followers. There are many people who call themselves Christians but sadly, They don’t live Christ-like lives and that is what being a Christian is. Christianity is more than just a title. It is a life long journey through good times and bad times. The difference between Christian by name and Christian by Truth is in how those situations are handled. Being a TRUE CHRISTIAN is not easy. It requires giving up our sinful and selfish ways and following the ways of our Savior Jesus Christ. Think of it this way, When we think of an electrician we think of someone who works with electricity. Pediatrics is a branch of medicine who deals with children and diseases. We call the people who work in this field Pediatricians. So if we are to call ourselves Christians isn’t it only right to expect ourselves to work in the name Jesus Christ? A True Christian life is not easy but it is worth it. We are reminded in Matthew 7:21-23: 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers! This scripture plainly states that just acknowledging Christ does not make you a follower of Jesus. It is the relationship we have with Christ that sets us apart from others. Remember Satan acknowledges God and Jesus Christ too, yet he has been banished from Heaven. We pray that you might have relationship with Jesus Christ!!! If you are not sure what that means let us know, we would be honored to help you. JESUS BLESS!!!

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom). Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, etc.
Not just the USA has the freedom, but thank God for sending His son to die on the cross for our sin and giving us a chance to get to know Him. Thank You Jesus for setting us FREE! You have broken the chains from sin and we can have FREEDOM in Christ! As you may celebrate today, celebrate today as it’s your independence day in Christ Jesus.
So to the world, Happy Independence Day in Christ!
I run in the path of your commands, for You have set my heart free.
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out Your precepts.
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because He has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
Then you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
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.
In Him [Christ] and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
JESUS BLESS YOU!
