God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Gettysburg. A matchless, favorite place I’ve visited with family. We paid our respects and were touched when we touched the monuments and patriot graves filled with honor. In a way, you can sense the spirit there that made ordinary men do extraordinary things to make us one nation. Despite the hundred-and-fifty-year gap, you somehow feel the “mystic chords of memory” binding us to that generation whose “hearts were touched with fire.”
Today, some say our nation has become so corrupt that Christians should not serve our country in the military. This is a horrible notion!
We can’t leave the incomparably important duty of defending our nation solely to nonbelievers! We have an obligation – a moral obligation – to protect this country. Our freedoms are bought with blood, and Christians – above everyone else – should honor that sacrifice.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Today, aim to influence the next generation so they never consider abdication of our defense. Help your children and grandchildren develop courage and a love of God and country.
