Last week, we celebrated the 4th of July, which is Independence Day. Where our forefathers along with 13 colonies and less than 3% of America threw off a tyrant who would not be ruled by God. During the act of celebrating, I noticed everybody had their patriotic, red, white, and blue T-shirts, hats, bracelets, and sunglasses on. However, I wondered as to how many of these people actually were in the fight to preserve our country all year round. Obviously, most of Americans are not taking responsibility, because if they were, we would not be in the position that we are in today.
Many people honor the veterans and the Founding Fathers one or two days a year when a particular holiday rolls around. However, the real question is, how many people actually respect and honor their sacrifices for securing the freedom we enjoy on a daily basis by fighting to preserve this country all throughout the year? Most Americans don’t even know what Independence Day truly about.
This is what the 4th of July is about. It is a great celebration of our declaring of our Independence from Great Britain and the tyrant King George. It also gave us the freedom to worship the God of the Bible, according to conscience, as understood in Scripture.
It is now to the point in America where we are starting to see foreigners from all over the world come into America and tell the American people what we need to hear about staying true to Jesus Christ and to go back to where we came from. See the video below.
Our veterans served to uphold the Constitution, magnifying constitutional law against crime to preserve our freedoms, which most Americans don’t even know. How does that make sense? It is a slap in the face to God, who through his Son Jesus Christ, gave us this great country. It’s also a slap in the face to the veterans who fight to uphold our Constitution daily (John 3:16).
One way you can show your thankfulness and gratefulness for the land our great God has given us is at the least knowing what our Forefathers and veterans fought, bled, and died to preserve (2 Corinthians 5:15). I don’t know if most of you that are reading this article right now realize it or not, but America is the most blessed country in the world, and so are we to live here (Psalm 103)! We have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and all other kinds of freedoms found in the Bill of Rights.
We need to make sure that we understand what Independence Day is all about and what made America great: Jesus Christ was the foundation of everything.
It has been rightly said, “If you do not where you came from, you do not know where you are going!”
Let’s fight to preserve this land so that the best country in the world will not turn to be the worst country in the world. That is the way you show your gratefulness to the veterans and the King of Veterans, His name is Jesus Christ.
