Our country just celebrated Independence Day and our 233rd birthday yesterday. It is a day to celebrate our freedom and remember all of the many sacrifices that were given, and blood that was shed to provide that freedom for us!!!!!! Even today, there are soldiers all around the world that are sacrificing for us - being away from their families and putting their lives in danger so that our country and our families can remain safe and free. I am eternally thankful for them! And I am thankful that the Lord has allowed me to live in America!
But there is another person who offered even a greater sacrifice - He gave His own life for us in order for us to have freedom. Not political freedom, but spiritual freedom and freedom from sin and eternal death in hell. Jesus Christ died and rose again for all, so we may have life eternal!
