I love patriotic holidays. I love being a citizen of the United States of America. It is a great nation no matter what has been happening to her in the past 8 years. While you are in services tomorrow, remember that we enjoy our freedom to worship because God allowed this nation to be formed where we have freedom of religion. That is not true in many nations around the world, especially in those that are spreading terror around the world. Be thankful. Remember the freedoms you have. Praise God that He also set us free but from the law of sin and death. When you are right with God, you need not fear death and you are free indeed. Christians who live in less free nations are still free — purchased by the blood of Jesus. That is what I am truly thankful for–the right to call Jesus my Savior and know that one day He will take me home to those mansions that are being prepared for all who long for His return. Praise Him!
