Letter from the Pastor: Thursday, July 4, 2024 - "The Sacrifice for Our Freedom"

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As we celebrate Independence Day today, I extend warm greetings to you all. This day marks a significant moment in our nation’s history, a celebration of the freedom and liberties that were hard-fought and won by our forefathers. It is also an opportune time to reflect on an even greater freedom that we possess – the spiritual freedom granted to us through Jesus Christ.

In John 15:13, Jesus says, "There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." This ultimate sacrifice of love is the foundation of our freedom from sin and death. Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection secured our liberty, not just for this life but for eternity. Ephesians 1:7 reminds us, "He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins."

Today, as we honor the sacrifices made for our national freedom, let us also remember and give thanks for the ultimate sacrifice made by our Savior. This dual celebration invites us to live responsibly and gratefully, using our freedoms to serve others and to glorify God.

Let us honor Christ’s sacrifice by living lives that reflect His love, grace, and truth. Share this message of spiritual freedom with those around you and be a testament to the transformative power of Christ's love.

May God bless you and keep you on this special day.

In Christ’s service,
Brother Jesse
