star spangled cupcake! yum!
More importantly than a free nation, however, is a soul freed from the bondage of sin and given peace with its Creator. The price was high; the wrath of God was poured out on His own Son as an atonement for our sin, so that we might be freed from sin and brought into a relationship with God. Today, let's celebrate our freedom in Christ as well as a nation. Take neither for granted.
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1
