On July 3, 1776, the day before the signing of the Declaration of
Independence, George Washington wrote a letter to his wife, anticipating the hardships which would soon occur.

Here in part are his words,
"In a few days, you will see a Declaration setting forth the causes which have impelled us to this mighty revolution and the reasons which will justify it in the sight of God. I am fully aware of the toil and blood and treasure what it will cost to maintain this declaration and support and defend these states; yes, through all the gloom, I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory."

The next day in Philadelphia the Declaration of Independence was signed by 55 of the representatives  of the thirteen Colonies in the First Continental Congress, July 4, 1776. A portion of the  Preamble goes as follows:

         “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created       equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain
         inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit
         of Happiness.”

I am tired of hearing from secularists that our founding fathers were not men of God who believed in Divine Providence’s hand in the forming of our great nation. 

I challenge you to remember that this 4th of July holiday is not about a country music festival or barbeques and firecrackers. This weekend we celebrate the freedom we enjoy that was framed by our nation’s founders 238 years ago. Every day we celebrate the freedom God has granted us through Jesus Christ.

Your pastor and partner in ministry,
