Today is the day that our country celebrates Independence Day. We as Americans have much for which to be thankful and one of the biggest is our freedom. Most of us have known nothing other than living in freedom, so it's easy to take it for granted. This is a day to reflect on the sacrifices that many have made through the years so that we can live freely.
But my mind automatically goes to the fact that the greatest sacrifice for our freedom came over two thousand years ago...in a distant land...on a hill...on a cross.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 (NIV)
