As we look at this symbol of freedom, I pray we will never forget our freedom was paid for with a great price and sacrifice by so many brave men and women who answered the call to defend our country. As David so beautifully sang Sunday morning, I'm proud to be an American!
The pride I feel as an American pales in comparison to what I feel when I look at this, the ultimate symbol of freedom. I am proud to be a Christian. I willingly choose to lay down my wants and desires, my will and my mind to the One who gave His life for me, an unworthy sinner.
As you enjoy your holiday, don't ever let the One who gave you true freedom be far from your heart and mind.
Ephesians 2: 1-10 reminds us of the price of this freedom we enjoy. May we never take it for granted or cease to be amazed what our salvation cost.
