HAPPY FREEDOM DAY!

July 4, 2011

Today is the 4th of July!  YEAH!!!  DON’T YOU LOVE HOLIDAYS!!

A day to reflect on the freedoms we have in this country as well as the many sacrifices that were made in order for us to have that freedom.  True freedom comes from truth.  As the scriptures tell us, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free”. (John 8: 31-33)

I am most grateful to live in a country where I can celebrate and enjoy many freedoms. Freedom to have my own business, freedom of assemble and worship in the church of my choice, freedom to live where I want and work where I want, just to name a few. For most of the world these “basic” freedoms we enjoy each day are but a dream.  We sometimes forget that we are in the minority when it comes to individual citizen freedoms.

Many from around the world desire to both visit and live here due to the freedoms we often times take for granted.  We are one of the few, if not the only, nation to even have a Holiday based on freedom.  A true rarity for the majority of the world.

So as we celebrate with barbecue, watermelon and fireworks let us remember those who have who have gone before us that paid for our freedom.  Most of all our Great Warrior, Jesus Christ!!

 

HAPPY FORTH OF JULY!!
