The price of freedom may be high, but never so costly as the loss of freedom. Ronald Reagan
When I think of the freedom we have, I also think of those who paid the price for my freedom. The life that I enjoy was made possible by the men and women who sacrificed to purchase our freedom. I think of the war heroes who attend The Sanctuary of Hope, and count it a privilege to call them friends. I honor them, and the sacrifice that they offered for our freedom. But we must always remember the price of eternal freedom. We have the privilege of living free from sin and the bondage that it brings. This was also purchased with a price, a sacrifice. We were separated from God by sin, but God loved us so much that He sent His Son as the perfect sacrifice. His life was not taken from Him, but He laid His life down for us. Let us always remember that the price was paid, so we can live as free sons and daughters.
“But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9:11-12 NIV
