I’m reading today on this 4th of July from the History channel, “The 4th of July also known as Independence Day or July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day goes back to the 18th Century and to the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document, drafted by Thomas Jefferson.
From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, and we do celebrate our independence. The concern I have today is, in our independence have we moved to a place of operating and living independently from the governance of almighty God?
This July 4th I remind you, it’s time to pray!
