Freedom Isn’t Free
When Kathy Bremer brought me her picture and wording to review for Sunday’s bulletin insert…it prompted some thoughts:
Our freedom, while we enjoy it daily without a second thought–cost someone.
Monday is Memorial Day and while I am glad to be an American–I am most glad to be a Christian. A follower of Jesus Christ.
Being an American was by birth. Something I had nothing at all to do with.
Being a Christian, a follower of Christ was a decision I made. Solely.
Realizing that JESUS paid the ultimate price for my sins–so that I could live under His grace brings me to my knees. Continually.
I thank my brothers and sisters in the armed forces who gave their ALL. Those who came before me…lived and died before me…and those who will come after me. To live and die so that I can live in a “free” America.
I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who left the glories of Heaven…lived and died as a man…so that I could live forever–with Him. (John 3:16)
While you are enjoying your free Memorial Day,
find someone to thank. Sincerely.
