Whether we are speaking of being a free citizen of the United States of America, or being free from the wages of sin, someone paid the price for our freedom.
If one person tries to silence the thoughts and convictions of another, they have instantly nullified freedom on both ends. To ask another person to abandon their personal belief system and their moral compass because they are not popular or make one person (or group) is self defeating. To force one person to abandon their personal convictions in order to serve the desires of another is the beginning of the end of freedom.
Let us not take lightly the price that was paid in blood by those who loved us and our nation enough to risk and/or lay down their lives for us. Let us never forget the sacrifice that Christ made for us that we could be free from sin.
Thank you, FATHER GOD, that we can be free because of Your great love for us and Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for us.
Thank you VETERANS for loving your country and cherishing this nation’s freedoms enough to risk your lives in order to assure our freedom.
