All around us we see celebrations of our country's freedom. From the local grocery store to our neighbor's home. Yet, the true celebration is found in our hearts. A rejoicing for the freedom we enjoy in our country because so many have given their lives that we might be free. And the gratitude that God has provided freedom for those who are covered in the red of Christ's blood.
Quotes on freedom to ponder while your heart celebrates.
"We find freedom when we find God; we lose it when we lose Him." Paul E. Scherer
"I venture to suggest that patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." Adlai Stevenson
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." Ronald Reagan
Pray for our country that our children and our children's children may enjoy true freedom founded in the worship of the One True God.
"Grace and peace to you...from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood,...be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen." Revelation 1:4-6 NIV
May you have a Happy Fourth of July.
