Gratitude for Freedom Now and Forever

The Gift of Freedom Now and Forever

On this particular holiday, we celebrate freedom now and forever. We give thanks for the aim of independence that marked the birth and evolution of our country.

  • The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
  • Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.
  • The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.

 Vision and Perserverance

We consider the words of past leaders and the vision they embraced. Their voices remind us of what our country was built on and what they believed would sustain us throughout history.

The duty of all nations is to acknowledge the providence of an Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benfits, and to humbly implore his protection and benefits.- George Washington

Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each indivudal…Continue steadfast, and with the proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights that heaven gave, and no man ought take from us. ~ John Hancock

We recognize no Soveriegn but God and no King but Jesus. ~ John Adams

My heart trembles as i relfect that God is just. – Thomas Jefferson

Freedom is not the right to do what we want but what we ought. Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it. ~ Abraham Lincoln

The winds that blow through the wide sky in these mountians, the winds that sweep from Canada to Mexico, from the Pacific to the Atlantic – have always blown on free men.  ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, and the spirit of men, so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else, like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

The rights of man cannot come from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God. ~ John F. Kennedy

This, then, is the state of the union:  free and restless, growing and full of hope.  So it was in the beginning.  So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith.  ~ Lyndon B. Johnson

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant, and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. – Ronald Reagen

We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and Freedom will prevail. ~ George W. Bush

Freedom for Eternity

As Christ-followers, we also hold fast to the Truth and the freedom now and forever that guides us because God sent His only Son to redeem us. For that, we offer our highest praise and thanksgiving. We cling to the promises in Scripture and the freedom that transcends this side of eternity.

I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. ~Psalm 119:45

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, – Isaiah 61:1  | Luke 4:18

And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. ~ John 8:23

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. ~John 8:36

But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. ~ Romans 6:22

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.~2 Corinthians 3:17

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love, serve one another. ~ Galatians 5:13

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. ~ I Peter 2:16

Join us as we thank God for the freedom he alone ordains, now and forever!
