From the Pastor’s Desk...
As we are looking forward to our Independence Day, most people are having the day off from work to celebrate. It is the day when families, friends and loved one prepare delicious food, watch fireworks, and have fun. Indeed, it is the day we celebrate the Declaration of Independence written in 1776.
Independence is “to have freedom from control or influence of another or others.” Thereby, we need to celebrate and enjoy the freedom we have because a lot of people have fought and given their lives so that we can have freedom to worship, travel anywhere, express our thoughts and beliefs and exercise our rights.
Nonetheless, we must also remember the One who has liberated us from everyone’s enemy. Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior has given us the freedom that no man on this planet Earth can give us. He has defeated sin and death and He gave us the key to have everlasting life. He has also given us the freedom to choose between life and death. We read in Deuteronomy 30:19 “This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”
Let us choose wisely...
