Freedom: a Costly Gift

May 30, 2011 by Paul Chappell

Today we remember.

We remember sacrifice. Bravery. Courage. We remember heroes—laid in graves around the world—who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. And we thank God for their sacrifice.

Let us never forget that freedom isn’t free.

That which requires such a price should be treasured—and gratefully used. Yet too often we squander this gift in selfish pursuits. Shouldn’t we rather use it to tell others of the Gospel and Christ who gave His life to free us from sin?

“And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again” (2 Corinthians 5:15).

Freedom costs. Are you using it?
