Patriots for Christ!

The Fourth of July is next week! America will be celebrating with barbecues, parades, and fireworks. We will observe the founding of our nation in 1776 when the constitution was signed. Did you know that the Bill of Rights was not added until December 15, 1791?

Of critical importance to Christians, the first amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” We are free to worship our Lord without restrictions or fear of persecution.

Let us use this freedom to put our LWML mission statement to work. Boldly proclaim Christ as you walk in His light, spreading the Good News. Be a patriot for Christ! This freedom is a gift from God and truly something to celebrate!

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7). Use this devotion about Christian patriotism as motivation.
