Happy Fourth of July from the Ridge!
Enjoy these beautiful photos of the fireworks show we witnessed tonight:
We would like to take a minute to express our gratitude to the mighty God of Heaven, who allows us to live in a country where His name can be proclaimed freely. Our prayers go out to our brothers and sisters in Christ who don’t experience this kind of freedom. But praise God that we have everlasting freedom in the person of Jesus.
Galatians 3: 25-29 says,
But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.
Thank you, God, that by Your sovereign grace through faith in Christ Jesus, we can experience adoption as sons and daughters. Galatians 5:1 says, “For freedom, Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” May we delight in our Savior, Jesus Christ, who provides freedom today and always!
