Let Freedom Ring

Happy 4th of July, Hopeton family and friends! We pray that you have had a safe celebration up to this day, and continue to be covered by His wings of protection as the celebration continues throughout this evening. 

On this day, two members of congress, John Hancock and Charles Thompson, penned a draft of the Declaration of Independence. John Adams, recognizing the importance of this document and declaration, declared that this would be a holiday that would be celebrated throughout the generations. Not only are we celebrating physical freedom, we are celebrating spiritual freedom. 

It reminds me of God commanding the Israelites to celebrate Passover in commemoration of their freedom from Egyptian slavery. 

I think, to follow in the footsteps of our Founding Fathers, celebrating our physical freedom and spiritual freedom is just what we should do each Independence Day. 

As you go through this holiday today, remember: "It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us FREE." (Galatians 5:1)
