This is the week that once again we pause and celebrate our freedom as a nation and the Independence and Liberty that we now enjoy. Today, we not only take a look at the Liberty we enjoy as Americans, but greater than that, we take a look at the Liberty that was made possible through the death of our Savior, Jesus Christ on the Cross.
All of the blessings we enjoy as Christians could not have taken place without our Statue of Liberty, and our Savior who bled and died on it. No, this is not a “statue” we worship, yet we do in fact worship our Lord and Savior who died on the cross and rose again 3 short days later so that we could experience new life and freedom spiritually!
Far from being a scene that would draw the viewer in to inspiration and awe at it’s beauty, but when one stops to consider the message of the Cross of freedom from sin, and when one hears the cry of “It Is Finished” echoing through the ages, the Cross is a monument of beauty!
Words like “Father Forgive Them, they know not what they do”, speaks of the unconditional love of Christ even though he was reviled and rejected by those He loved.
We trust that you will take time today to not only appreciate and pray for this great nation, but that you will also draw nearer to Christ than ever before as we bring Him honor and praises.
Galatians 6:14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
