God Bless America!

As we celebrate the birth of this nation, let us remember “In God we Trust”. Let’s be grateful for the freedoms we enjoy, especially our freedom to worship.

The Word, which gives life!
    He existed from the beginning.
We have heard him,
    we have seen him with our eyes,
we have contemplated him,
    we have touched him with our hands! (speaking of the Disciples)

 The life appeared,
    and we have seen it.
We are testifying to it
    and announcing it to you —
eternal life!

He was with the Father,
    and he appeared to us.
 What we have seen and heard,
    we are proclaiming to you;
so that you too
    may have fellowship with us.
Our fellowship is with the Father
    and with his Son, Yeshua the Messiah.
 We are writing these things
        so that our joy may be complete.

 And this is the message which we have heard from him and proclaim to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him — none!

 If we claim to have fellowship with him while we are walking in the darkness, we are lying and not living out the truth.  But if we are walking in the light, as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of his Son Yeshua purifies us from all sin.

 If we claim not to have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing.

 If we claim we have not been sinning, we are making him out to be a liar, and his Word is not in us. John 1:1-10

Take a moment to reflect on these words, it makes a difference.

Happy Fourth America!

People came to these shores to escape tyranny, religious bias from their own country. If we search our ancestry we will find we all are immigrants. Lets celebrate our diversity in love, the love God showed us, not in hatred and strife. Let’s celebrate the love that is in us, let it shine brightly in how we treat each other.

Thank you for visiting 🙂

May our Messiah bless you always to live in peace with Him and all people.
