A Week of Thanksgiving -- Day 2

Today I am thankful for FREEDOM:

of religion
of speech
to agree or disagree
to vote
from the chains of my sin
from legalism
to choose
to sing
to have as many Bibles as I want in my home
to openly share the Gospel

That's a smorgasboard, but the first things that come to mind.

As I was thinking about writing this post, I thought how true it is that freedom is not free. Coincidentally (or not), my nephew, a Marine, posted that very thing as his FB status this morning. He is well-acqauinted with the price of freedom.

Many have died for our freedom as Americans. Many sacrifice time with loved ones. Many families sacrifice their loved ones.

The highest price ever paid was by a perfect man named Jesus, who was willingly crucified on a tree to pay the penalty for our sin. If you don't own the freedom He bought for you, I urge you to read the book of John in the Bible, and consider the price He paid for your freedom.
