Today I am reposting my Memorial Day posts from a year ago. This is the first one, a reminder to the church in America that true freedom can only come from one place and that an American living in the land of the free and the home of the brave who doesn't know Christ can never know true freedom and the believer languishing in prison in China knows a freedom beyond anything the world can offer.
Today is Memorial Day in the United Sates and as a people we are going to be remembering those who died fighting for America.
Let those of us who know and are known by Christ remember that our freedom was not won or preserved by those buried under a field of crosses in Normandy Cemetery in France, as noble and heroic as their sacrifice was. Our freedom was won on a single cross on Calvary. Our declaration of independence is not found on a parchment in Washington, D.C., it is in the words cried out by our Savior "It is finished!"
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
