National Day of Prayer 2021

Today is National Day of Prayer.  "The Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a 'National Day of Prayer.'" (www.whitehouse.gov/)  Wherever you work, whatever you do, understand this BY CONGRESSIONAL LAW AND PRESIDENTIAL PROCLAMATION, CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES HAVE BEEN CALLED ON TO PRAY TODAY!  

I have the privilege of working at a Christian owned company, Inontime, so during our morning meeting time I shared the following.

This year's National Day of Prayer theme is 2 Corinthians 3:17.  

Remember this verse and ALL of scripture is NOT about American national pride and political freedom.  I am proud of my country and thankful for political freedom but this verse is about so much more than these things.
It is about freedom in Christ that enables us to see life through a Biblical worldview and to be transformed into the image of Christ.  
For an explanation of this verse in context, check out Look at the Book on 2 Corinthians 3:15-18

Verses 14 and 15 refer to dull minds, veiled sight and veiled hearts.
Verses 16 and 17 say that Jesus Christ removes the veil and gives freedom.
Verse 18 refers to the transformation those in Christ experience.  


Thank you for the freedom you have given us in Christ.

Freedom to see and understand that we are sinners in a fallen world in desperate need of a savior
Freedom to be transformed into the image of Christ by your power and your grace.  
Freedom to love others no matter where they are at spiritually because you loved us when we were still sinners.
