I am excited today as we celebrate our freedom. I thank God for all those that have done so much to gain our liberty and to maintain it. My dad, brother, and uncles all served in the military. The uncle that I am named for died in the service of our country. I love the United States of America. I thank God for the privilege of being born here and serving God here.
I am even more thankful for the freedom that I have in Christ Jesus. We, as Americans, have many freedoms but none so precious as the freedom from sin, death, and Hell. You say we will die but according to Jesus we will not really die. John 11:26 We are free from the penalty of sin and death has lost its power.
Today we begin preaching through the book of Ephesians. I am really excited about this wonderful book that deals with all that we have in Christ Jesus. You are going to love it.
The message today is on Saints and Faithful and that is what we are because of the work that Jesus has done in us. You will be thrilled as you learn all that God has done for you through Jesus Christ!
Thanks for all you do and thanks for being here today. God bless each of you.
