There is no freedom without sacrifice. On Memorial Day we remember and honor those who paid the ultimate price for our country. Their sacrifice, ensured the freedoms that we have become accustomed to: freedom to speak our mind, freedom to vote for our leaders, freedom to achieve our dreams, freedom to own a Bible and gather to worship. Liberties we so often take for granted, yet were bought with a price…blood.
The sacrifices of our fallen heroes, mirrors for me the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us on the cross. He bought our freedom from sin with His blood. We no longer must live in bondage to sin, rather, we are emancipated by His grace.
As we gather to honor those who gave ALL, may we never forget the great price that is paid for our freedom. Freedom is never Free!
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
