Friday Links Roundup: 4th and 5th Edition

We're excited about the Fourth of July. Much of our family is coming for the weekend and we always enjoy time with family. It is also a great time to reflect on our nation and to thank God for what He has done for us in the past. He truly is good!

On the fifth, I'm excited to be preaching a sermon entitled "July 5: YOUR Independence Day." We are praying for someone to hear the truth and respond to the freedom that is only in Christ. Will you pray as well?

On to the links for this week:

1. Yes, it's shameless, but if you mention Lebanon Road, you're probably going to be in the roundup! My friend, Stuart Yancy, mentioned our congregation in a post about the airport in Paducah. Here it is.

2. Drew Kizer posts a great article about "locks" we have trouble "picking." This is a sermon just waiting to be preached!

3. We are always motivated by stories of those who overcome a troubled environment to achieve something noteworthy. How about overcoming nearly continual homelessness to attend an Ivy League school? The Los Angeles Times reported that story here.

4. Finally, one for the holiday. Just in case you need it, here is a transcript of the Declaration of Independence.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend. No matter where you find yourself, make sure you thank God for the blessings He provides and make sure you worship Him on His day. If you're near Nashville, we hope that'll be with us at Lebanon Road!
