As we celebrate America this holiday weekend, World Vision USA president Richard Stearns reminds us that we are citizens of Christ first.
God has blessed our nation, but for Christians those blessings come with a purpose. See the priorities our faith commands:
The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Every year Reneé and I throw a barbeque for friends. We started this tradition in 1976, America’s bicentennial and our first year as a married couple. Ever since, we’ve fired up the grill and laid out a spread of hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, coleslaw, potato salad, and homemade ice cream for as many as 120 people. I’ll never forget the time a guest stood up and read the entire text of the Declaration of Independence. It was hard to get people to come back the next year.
