As I think about this July 4th week, I am so grateful for the men and women who give so much for our personal freedoms. Those who fight for us in places that don’t have swimming pools and picnics and air conditioning. Those who protect our country here in the States. Those who care for our armed forces who are injured. And so many others who have stepped up to serve.
I am reminded today that my personal freedoms are mine to enjoy BECAUSE someone else fought for them. They came with a price.
And considering freedoms paid with a price…no greater freedom exists than the freedom you gave us through your Son, Jesus. His life, death, and resurrection make it possible for me to live a life of extraordinary Joy and Peace…with great Hope in His promises.
Thank you, God.
“…and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)
