Freedom

May 28, 2016

Memorial Day weekend should be a time when we remember the men and women who fought and died to give us the freedom we enjoy in the USA. There are many who read this who do not have the freedom of religion, speech, the press, peaceful assembly and the right to address grievances to the government.

The United States of America is a wonderful place to live but it does not come without the sacrifices of our military men and women, both past and present, who give their lives to give us our freedom. Most of all remember that in Christ all are free through His great sacrifice on the cross.

Many will spend this weekend out at the beach, picnics, amusement parks and various other activities  without a thought for why they have this long weekend to enjoy whatever they choose to do. 

So stop! For just a few minutes to pray and thank the Lord for freedom and the fallen heroes, and pray for those who are still serving in the military today. Then enjoy the rest of this weekend with thankful hearts.

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Remember….

Romans 5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

  

Memorial Day Weekend

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened.” Billy Graham

This is Memorial Day weekend for Americans. Sadly many are not even aware of why we have this holiday. The beginning of summer, bargains at the mall or just a time to have a picnic a lot of USA citizens think.

Memorial Day originated after the Civial War to honor the men who died. It was originally called Decoration Day. There are usually parades where living veterans March to honor their fallen heroes. Graves are decorated with American flags and flowers.

We have the great privilege of living in America where we are still free to worship, vote for our leaders and have freedom of speech. This weekend take time to think about the brave men and women who have fought for our country and if you know a veteran or someone who is in the military now say thanks for your service. 

There may come a time when the freedoms we so enjoy are taken away. Take a few minutes to pray for wisdom for our leaders. We are still the “land of the free and of the brave.” Pray the USA will continue to be a free country. 

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Thank You for Your Service

Forever Freedom

May 24, 2014

Memorial Day weekend. Time to honor the men and women in the military that fought bravely so that we can have freedom. Many died, some were injured and their lives changed forever.
Take time to pray for the families, and thank The Lord for the freedom we enjoy because of the sacrifice given by our brave military men and women.
Then remember the One who also sacrificed His life for our spiritual freedom, The Lord Jesus Christ.
The freedom we enjoy in the USA could be taken away, but the freedom we have in Jesus can never be taken from us if we have trusted Him as our personal Savior.

John 8:36
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
