Pastor's Corner Freedom Well, we have just celebrated the 4th of July once again. There were celebrations everywhere with lots of food, fun, and fireworks. This day is to celebrate our country's independence and freedom. It is my prayer that we will remember that this day came with a cost, with loss, and with pain. Freedom never seems to come without a price. Where our country is concerned, our military and their families have paid that price with their blood, sweat, and tears. But there is another freedom that also came with blood, sweat, and tears. And as Paul Harvey used to say, now for "the rest of the story y When we think of freedom, we usually think of being able to do whatever we want, whenever we want. But there is a freedom much different from this, one that will truly set you free. by ]on Sorg John 8:32 says, 'nd you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." So what is this truth? That we are prisoners? Yes, we are. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God's wonderful kindness rules instead for those that have accepted this gift, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. But there was a price for this freedom. There was blood, sweat, and tears poured out for you! Jesus went to the cross and died for each of us so that we could know true freedom. So this year, as we've been, celebrating our country's freedom, remember the most important freedom we have. The freedom that was paid for at a very high cost by Christ but freely given to each of us and all we have to do is believe, ask, and accept.
