Memorial Day.  Today is the day we honor our brave men and women of the Armed Forces who protect and keep our country safe from invasion, and keep intact our freedom and liberties provided by the Constitution.

Thanks to all of you out there who have served, or are serving our country in this capacity!  We appreciate your sacrifices for our freedom!  We honor you for leaving your families, living in war-torn countries, some dying…just to keep us free!

But today, I would like to thank one person in particular.  His name is Jesus!  All of you who are reading this, and KNOW Him in a personal way can attest to the fact that He has given you an unfathomable Freedom!  Because of His sacrifice on the cross, we are free from our ugly past, free from the pain caused by sin.  John 8:36 says this:  “If the Son (JESUS) therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

Jesus fought the greatest battle in the history of the world when he went to war with satan for your soul!  He (Jesus) conquered death and hell on Mount Calvary!  As He breathed His last breath on the cross, He was thinking of your Freedom!

If you’ve accepted His sacrifice for your sin, He protects you daily…moment by moment, from  an invasion from hell, keeping at bay, satan and his demons that wish you harm!   He keeps your Freedom and Liberties intact through His marvelous Grace!  His sacrifice not only provides you Peace in this life…but in the eternal life to come!  He extends Mercy instead of Justice.  He gives Love instead of demanding punishment!

As we give honor today to those who have kept America free, let’s also remember to give honor to the One who gave His all for us on the Cross of Calvary!  Thank You Jesus for my Freedom!
