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
There are those veterans from World War II often still alive. Not too many of them but they are around. I was blessed a couple months ago to be arriving at Washington Reagan Airport at the same time an Honor Flight of WWII veterans from Kansas City was deplaning. What a sheer joy it was to witness this plane load of older gentleman who made it through the war and were in the nation's Capitol to see the Memorial in their memory and honor. This generation was known as 'The Greatest Generation' and indeed they were.Our country and its' freedom were paid for by the blood of soldiers,sailors,airmen,and Marines who fought and died to protect us from tyranny, evil, and domination. Freedom is a gift from the Almighty God. Our Founders knew that and that is why this nation is so unique. Evil though does not like freedom and so this nation,blessed by God, remains free because of the blessings of the Lord. When we start to turn our backs on Him and His word we are in trouble.Today we pay tribute to those courageous men and women whose lives were lost in Pearl Harbor on this day in 1941. We should never forget the sacrifices made for freedom and each of us who love America is responsible to help secure that freedom.PRAYER: Help me to never forget that this country is blessed because we were founded as a Christian nation. Satan lies to people to try to reeducate them to this part of history. We know it is true Lord and we thank you for how we were founded. May the people who wander in the darkness be made known to know the truth. In Jesus' name. Amen.
