(Today’s word respectfully reproduced from word for the day 07 04 2016.)
It is Monday, July 4th. TGFT. Independence Day
Listen to the word of God to us today.
Matthew 1:21 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (KJV) (upper case letter-my emphasis)
This past Monday, I had the opportunity to attend the ceremony for the swearing-in of new citizens. It was a packed courthouse. As I sat in the gallery, I saw people from so many countries, excited to become Americans. The presiding Judge told them as American, they have all the rights just like he did. That stand out for me. Today if you accept Christ Jesus who came into the world to save us from our sins, you have the same salvation like any christian who was save 20, 30, or even 40 years ago. What a thought. To those young believers who just got baptized, you have the same salvation like all of us. Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
Jesus came to save us from the bondage of sin, from the grip of sin, and from the power of sin. Praise the name of the Lord.
May the Lord richly bless you always
Prayer for the day: Father, how we thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank you for setting us free from the burden of sin. Accept the praise of our lips and the thanksgiving of our hearts, this we pray in Jesus name, Amen. Happy Independence day to all.
