    On July 4, we celebrate Independence Day, and it is a wonderful celebration for our nation! But brothers and sisters, there is no room for an “independent spirit” in the Body of Christ! An independent spirit is usually rooted in fear and pride. Yes, we are diverse. And no, we will never agree on every point of doctrine. But we must come together under the banner of the Lord Jesus Christ to allow His Holy Spirit to advance the Kingdom of God through us! I dare not become so consumed by my little corner of the world that I disregard the whole! I must have a heart for God’s kingdom, not mine.
