“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”
— Declaration of Independence
July 4, 1776
Truth for today
The Declaration prizes virtues our forefathers fought and died to preserve. Eternal freedom, however, is found in Christ Jesus. Click to Tweet.
- Equality: All men and woman are equal to God who shows no favoritism (Gal. 2:6).
- Life: He offers eternal life to those who believe by faith in the atoning blood of Jesus to forgive their sins (Eph. 2:8-9).
- Liberty: We can stand confidently in the liberty found through our new life in Christ (Gal. 5:1).
- Happiness: We discover true joy when we delight ourselves in the Lord (Psalm 37:4).
Wishing you and your family a blessed Independence Day!
