The Cost of Freedom

The freedom that we enjoy in America came at a cost. It came at the cost of many soldiers in the War of Independence.  It came at the cost of many soldiers in the Civil War and in both World Wars. You can add other wars to this list as well: the Mexican-American War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and even the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In some way or another, all of these wars have helped to support the freedom that we now enjoy.

On this Memorial Day, let us remember the spiritual freedom that we have in Christ. It came at the cost of the death of the Son of God.

“He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed” (1 Peter 2:24).
