The Fourth of July is approaching quickly. We will be open on July 4th from 5:00am-2:00pm and back to our normal operating hours, Thursday-Saturday 5:00am-8:00pm and Sunday 8:00am-2:00pm, so stop on in and grab an omelette for breakfast, an awesome bacon cheeseburger for lunch, or some house roast beef for dinner!
We also wanted to take a minute to share a fantastic article written by Mike Pohlman. It’s titled Another Declaration of Independence: Freedom in Christ. Here’s a preview of the article and a link to the full article is just below. Enjoy and let us know what you think of it. Have a fantastic week!
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Like millions of Americans this week, my mind is on the Fourth of July holiday and what it represents: our freedom as a nation. This freedom is a precious thing, bought with the sweat, toil and blood of countless Americans who initially fought to obtain it (Revolutionary War), as well as those who have fought to secure it in the centuries since that fateful day in 1776.
Gratitude without measure wells up in my heart when I consider the brave men and women of the American military who, this Fourth of July, will be fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan to combat the tyranny of terrorism. These soldiers stand in the train of valiant warriors who fought in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, two World Wars, Korea, Vietnam and the first Gulf War. Each of these conflicts—while unique in themselves—shared the common goal of protecting American freedom. Today’s battles are no different.
But even as I prize my freedom as an American, I am moved to consider a greater freedom—my freedom in Christ. It is the freedom that comes with being a disciple of Jesus Christ. “If you abide in my word,” our Lord declares, “you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32).
