So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

John 8:36

 

What a long journey from a humble log cabin to the White House. The road Abe Lincoln traveled had hardships – from the loss of family as a boy to the turmoil of a war-torn nation as a man. Without question, his faith and perseverance contributed to his Gettysburg Address, in which he asked that we be:

 

    dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead      

we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full                

measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not            

have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of                  

freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people,           

shall not perish from the earth.

 

All these years later, it is imperative we make the same commitment!

 

Sweet Freedom in Action

Today, ask God for the courage and will to fight for America’s future in honor of those who did fight – and even died – for this country. Do something tangible for those who serve, and promise them that their sacrifices have not been, and will not be, in vain.
