A Christian's meditation on USA Independence Day


What am I dependent on that I need to declare my independence from? What will I do differently tomorrow to win that independence?


July 4th was only a declaration. The independence wasn't a done deal. I'm here to proclaim it is still BEING WON. And just like the cliche of "every kid gets a ribbon", I'm not going to get complacent until every one wins their independence!


As a Christian, I believe it isn't likely to happen until Jesus returns.


However, and this is important, Jesus didn't teach us a "Lord's Prayer" that says "just wait until you get to heaven." He taught us to pray, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."


Therefore, Micah 6:8 "...do justice...love kindness...walk humbly..."


I haven't puzzled it out yet what I want to declare my independence from today. If it comes to me, I'll let y'all know!
