THE PRICE OF FREEDOM

         As immigrants our ancestors left everything behind. Coming to America with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

         They risked their lives for something they valued more highly than everything they had left behind; Freedom.

          They did not take their adopted country's freedom for granted ----and neither should we.

           Their experience is a picture of what we must do when we come to Christ.  We must forsake our old way of life and become citizens  of a new kingdom----the kingdom of God.

           The statue of Liberty rises above New York's Harbor signifying our freedom in America.

                       The statue of Liberty that was just outside Jerusalem signifies our freedom from sin and lights the way to eternal life with Christ our Lord in a kingdom with out end. 

                     The price of freedom bore a high cost to our fore fathers and an even  greater cost to our Saviour
it cost Him His life.

          If the son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.   John  8 : 36.  "May freedom reign in your heart and life today and forever."
