INDEPENDENCE DAY

For those of us in the United States, the time is here again for our midsummers patriotic celebrations. For many, the Fourth of July means parades and picnics, ribs, chicken and Pepsi, and bombs bursting in air. The Declaration of 1776 happened during one of the best weather weeks of the year according to meteorologists. Here we are 246 years later, and according to the 10-day forecast the holiday weather is supposed to be a great day to celebrate the deeply rooted annual occasion in the American psyche.

One should ask, is there anything that makes the day different for an American follower of Jesus. Does being born again affect how we view the Fourth of July? Consider this layer of perspective for the Christian in contemplating the Fourth. If we are in Christ, joined to him by faith, all other pledges of allegiance have been relativized. We still have our loyalties, some even multiply. But remember, no man can ultimately serve both God and country. In Jesus, we have one final allegiance, and thus in this world we will always be, in some real sense, pilgrims, strangers and aliens, sojourners and exiles (1 Peter 2:11).

For the Christian, our citizenship in any nation aims to be worthy of the gospel of Christ (Philippians 1:27), not merely worthy of that political state. At the most basic level, our citizenship is in Heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ who will do for us what no political entity in this world will ever do. He will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself (Philippians 3:20-21).

Remember when it is all said and done and we have taken our last breath, here on earth, we are sons and daughters of God, not sons and daughters of Uncle Sam.

Dr. Victor M. Davis, Pastor
