They say freedom isn’t free and that is absolutely true. Yesterday, we honored the many veterans this nation owes its deepest gratitude for their incredible sacrifice to ensure our freedom. One of the freedoms we too often take for granted is our freedom to live as we please — and worship as we wish. In so many countries around the world, Christian are persecuted and are forced to worship in secret, risking death every time they pray. We have so much to be thankful for, and the Bible tells us, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Today, say thank you to our veterans, whose sacrifice allows us to worship Jesus freely.
“give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV
