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
Happy 240th birthday to the United States of America! I am thankful to have been born in this fairly young country who values individual liberty, the Bible, and freedom or at least we used to.
What does it mean to be free? The original settlers and founders valued freedom from the tyranny of England. Here in this new world they were free to worship God and not be under bondage to a King. It wasn't easy. Securing freedom never is.
Many threats to our freedom exist today and are slipping in on us ever so subtly that sometimes we don't realize what is being taken away till it is almost too late to fight back. There is a saying by Sir Edmund Burke that simply says "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing." Today as you celebrate the birthday of America really think what freedom means and do your part to help the US remain free.
PRAYER: Lord I love freedom. So many different people have not been blessed with the quality of life we have been blessed with here. Enemies are at work even within our own country to take freedom away and transform America. Please protect us Lord and hear our prayers. In Jesus' name. Amen.
