It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Ask anyone who has been locked up for any period of time in jail or prison or a combat prisoner of war. Being free is such a privilege that here in America has been secured over the past 235 years by those brave men and sometimes women who gave the ultimate gift of their life to protect this country. We were warned on September 11, 2001 that we are vulnerable to attacks on our own shore and we still are. Each day we go about freely often not even thinking about those people who put their lives on the line each day in service to the country in the Armed Forces. Well today is Veterans' Day a day to pay tribute to those currently serving and those who have served.
We are free in Christ and not subject to a yoke of bondage. Satan likes to hold us captive but Jesus breaks the chains Satan tries to bind us up in. Just like the freedom we enjoy we too can be free in Christ. Freedom is special and no dictator or king has the right to take it away from us. This is why our brave men and women in uniform go to foreign lands, to secure liberty and justice for all.
Take a moment and thank the Lord for the blessings of liberty. Thank Him for those brave and courageous service members today and in the past that served so we might sleep better at night and enjoy the things we enjoy. One of those freedoms is freedom of religion to worship God freely and openly. Only an evil force would try to come in and steal that from us. Never take freedom for granted and today when you get a chance, thank a vet!
PRAYER: Thanks Lord for liberty and for those brave souls who paved the way to give us what we have today. Protect those serving currently and help us never forget those also who paid the ultimate price for freedom and are not here to celebrate Veterans' Day. In Jesus' name. Amen.
