July 2024 Pastor Cecilia Comer

Happy July!

Grace and Peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and blessings of love and joy!

Today is the 4th of July. Happy 4th of July to you! With recently celebrating Juneteenth, one of our newest national holidays, and today, the 4th of July, we have the opportunity to be reminded of our nation’s history and to give thanks for the progress that we have made towards life, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness.
 
Our nation’s history has not been without trials, errors, or horrors, but it has also included moments of goodwill, positive advancement, and beauty. As imperfect as we are as people and a nation, by the grace of God’s we are a great nation; and truly, this is an apropos season to reflect and be thankful for being Americans.
 
In honor of our freedom, I want to invite you to join me, and thank God for your life today. Thank God today for the liberties and freedom that you have. Thank God for all of the ways that you are able to pursue happiness, and for all the happiness and fulfillment you have enjoyed. This includes the freedom to pursue Jesus and to grow in His grace.
 
Pursuing Jesus has led to the most fulfilling experiences and expressions of life, liberty and happiness that I have ever had. I have lived in Seattle, in the deep south here in the U.S., and several other places. I can say that not all of my experiences have been good, and yet some of my experiences have been fabulous and marked by God’s grace. In my darkest hours, it was pursuing Jesus and the life, liberty and happiness that He brings that made all the difference. I thank Him and bless Him for the life and freedom and joy He brings, and for the blessing of being and American.
 
Would you pray with me today for the less fortunate here and everywhere? Would you join me in praying that they too would experience a turnaround in their situations? Pray with me, that they will begin to experience more life, more freedom, and more happiness-especially through Christ Jesus.
 
That is my prayer for us all, that we would experience more life, freedom, and joy wherever we are, whoever we are, for as long as we are, with the help of God through Jesus Christ our Lord, and that we would serve one another in love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
 
Psalm 33:12
12Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.
 
Psalm 33:20-22
Let us, “20…wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
21In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
22May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.
 
2 Cor 3:17
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

God bless you,
Pastor Cecilia Comer
