Pastor’s Newsletter Article

This is the latest of the articles Pastor Richert writes for the monthly church newsletter.

Life, Liberty, Happiness

One of the most famous quotes from our country’s Declaration of Independence, signed July 4, 1776, is “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.” We know that our country has many problems, but we have all been blessed by God to live in a country that recognizes these basic human rights. How much more have we as Christians been blessed to be a part of God’s kingdom!

He has given us eternal life. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (Jn. 3:16).

God has also liberated us from slavery to sin. “Our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin” (Rom. 6:6).

And God has provided true happiness for us. Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full” (Jn. 15:11).

We have been doubly blessed by God to be able to enjoy life, liberty and happiness now and for eternity!
