Freedom's Fireworks

It’s been 237 years since that Fourth of July when our forefathers pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to declare that we are a free people.  To preserve our independence, millions of brave souls have left their blood on battlefields from the South Pacific to North Africa.  Freedom, they sacrificially proved, is not free.

In bondage to the tyranny of sin, each of us, usually muffled into a silent scream, cries out for liberation from false deities that occupy God’s rightful place in our lives.

The Good News is that your spiritual freedom was fully paid for by Jesus Christ, the Son of the one true God, who left His blood on a hill near Jerusalem.

When you surrender your will to Him, you may or may not experience fireworks.  But you will know God's forgiveness.

To enjoy the benefits of a Roman candle or a Roman cross, you'll need to look up.
