Chaplain's Corner - June/July


The Precious Gift of Freedom
If you study the character of mankind over the centuries, you’ll find there is one passion that transcends all languages, cultures, and barriers – man has an inborn desire and drive to be free. 

We were created with this God-given drive. Freedom is the passion that lifts man above the animals. 

It’s a precious gift that God has granted to our great nation and must not be taken lightly. We have been given freedom because there once existed a condition of bondage. 

  • There was taxation without representation.
  • There was no free speech.
  • There was a limit on the freedom of religion. 
  • The government at that time was involved in every facet of life. 

I thank God I live in the United States of America, land of the free, home of the brave. This freedom came at the shedding of blood to preserve this precious gift. 

On the last Monday of May, our nation officially remembers our war dead. We should never take the freedoms we enjoy for granted.

The same principle of freedom operates in the spiritual realm as well. We need to be delivered because man is born in bondage to sin.

Freedom from sin came at great cost – the shedding of the innocent blood of Jesus Christ. We should never forget the price that was paid for our spiritual freedom.

Celebrate Independence Day

John 8:36 – If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

So, take a couple of minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday to thank God, our Founding Fathers, and the millions of men and women in uniform for the price they paid for our freedom. May we never let the light of freedom go out.
