The Most Patriotic Verse in the Bible
I am a flag-waving, country-loving member of the America-love-it-or-leave-it crowd. Yet I am reminded from Scripture that the greatest thing I can do for my country is not to wave a flag but to live a holy life. The best way to truly love country is to love God first.
This Memorial Day weekend we will honor the memories of those who gave their lives for our civic freedom. We will also (first and foremost) honor the One who gave His life for our eternal freedom. So for the latest installation in our new Sunday morning series called, "The Most" we will take a serious look at "The Most Patriotic Verse in the Bible."
If you are in Blackshear for the holiday weekend, join us for Sunday School and worship. We are going to have a great Christ-honoring look at a Biblical view of patriotism.
