John 15:13
“Greater love has no one than this:
to lay down one’s life
for one’s friends.”

Freedom isn’t free and it’s my belief that to be truly free someone has to make a sacrifice in order for themselves and others to be free. I believe this for two primary reasons. There’s two ways you can say what I’m about to write and finish this write and you’ll understand. To the free nations “Some gave all in order for all to have some freedom” and then “All gave some some gave all”

As veterans and armed service personnel we sacrificed all we have in order that the people of America can  practice the God given freedoms that the US Constitution promises. And we do this for many reasons and willingly. We want our children to have better than what we have. We have freedoms that no other country has all because Some sacrifice all they have in order for all of America can have freedom. Now the other “All gave some, some gave all’ refers to all those that gave it all on the battle field not to return home alive or came home and are forever scared and wounded. It is not my intention to upset anyone but our freedom and Americas freedom isn’t free, so please thank our veterans and service members especially on Veterans day but not limited to Veterans day or Memorial Day for the sacrifices they make every day for us. So please be ever grateful to our Veterans and Armed Service Personnel whether in the USA or across foreign lands…

But let us not forget the One most important person that gave up everything to free us from the bondage and slavery to sin. He truly frees us, He redeemed sinful man all because God loves you, me, all of us. Jesus walked for approximately 33 ½ years fully God and fully man ministering to mankind that He is the Christ and all that would lay down their life and believe in Him will have eternal life. Do we deserve it NO, can we earn it NO. Romans 10:9 says That if you confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord”  and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. I next start the process of walking away from my past life allowing Christ to come live in my heart changing me from the inside out and then making the changes willingly on the outside so that others can see the love of God and the hope that lives in me. Now these changes come through studying Gods Word as well, obeying the conviction of the Holy Spirit from sin. We all have to count the cost to be a follower of Christ.

If you want the kind of freedom that only Christ can give then confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you my friend are saved. Find a church locally that hopefully teaches the Bible and only the Bible or find a ministered to help guide you along in this journey. If you have fallen away go to the Lord in Prayer confessing asking for forgiveness and start walking closely in a relationship with Christ. No matter the bondage Christ can and will break the chains of sin. Well thank you and God Bless You all….
