July 4—A Reminder That Earth Is Not Our Home

Happy Independence Day to all our American supporters! We’re thankful for this day to celebrate our nation and express our thanks to the Lord for the freedoms we enjoy here. But as we continue to see our freedom of religion and freedom of speech stripped away, many Christians in western countries are starting to realize there’s a huge and growing divide between what is Christian and what is not. And that’s a good reminder that earth is not our home.

The Bible reminds us that

Here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. (Hebrews 13:14)

As Christians, earth is not our home, and America is not our ultimate country! We can rejoice in the fact that we are citizens of heaven and will someday dwell for eternity with Christ in the new heavens and the new earth where there will be no more death, sin, pain, or crying (Revelation 21:4). What a hope we have!

Our faith shouldn’t be grounded in America or the freedoms we now enjoy. It should be grounded in God’s Word and the promise of eternity that we have in Christ.

Veterans Enjoy Free Admission to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum

As our way of saying “thank you” to those who have served America in the military, we’re offering free admission to both the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum on July 4 for all United States veterans. Thank you for your service! We hope you will enjoy this opportunity to tour our world-class attractions in Northern Kentucky for free.

Again, happy Independence Day! I pray you and your family will enjoy your time celebrating together.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
