Have a great 4th of July!

This is a great nation. We have been blessed by the Lord with freedom and prosperity. This 4th of July I urge all of you to give thanks to the Lord for all of His blessings on our country. This time of year should cause all of us to pause and return praise to the One who has been so good to us. As a nation we should repent of any and all sins that may be grieving the Lord. Here are some things that we might take to the Lord in repentance:

1. Repent of our spiritual apathy.

2. Repent of our guilt as a nation for allowing abortion to kill so many innocent lives.

3. Repent of the moral pollution that we have allowed to fill the youth of this nation.

4. Repent that we have elected leaders who have no moral courage to do what is right no mater what the cost.

5. Repent that we have not sought the Lord for a national revival.

I love this country because of our religious liberty. Our forefathers came here to be able to worship God without government interference. We have the greatest government on earth. But it is important that we not take it for granted. To keep this nation great we must be a godly and holy people. May God bless each of you as you celebrate this holiday with your families.

Here are some quotes that should cause us all to think!

"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money." Alexis de Tocqueville

America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Have a great holiday!
Pastor Dickie
