“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Our forefathers valued freedom from tyranny more than their own lives. They were men of faith and morals, and on these things our great country was founded. Sadly, both of these virtues fall by the wayside as we grow further from our roots. That’s not to say all is lost. There are still many great men and women who fight for God and country, and to them I say,” Thank you!“.
Many of us have our own independence day. That’s the day we gave our hearts to the Lord. We too overcame, “by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony”, giving our lives to the One who gave His for us. Now that you’ve died for Him, how will you live for Him? I pray that on this day you’ll remember your “independence day”, and give the Lord your all.
