There is Liberty

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

We were worshiping yesterday at church and as we were singing, I saw something that really caught my eye.  Yes, we had props in front on the stage from our monthly sermon, and the pastor, the band, our choir.  We had five beautiful American flags, lots of red, white, and blue everywhere.  But what struck me in the midst of all of this was what stood out just two rows in front of us.  A young man, probably in his late twenties was singing and had his arms stretched out to God.  On his left forearm was a large tattoo of the Statue of Liberty.  

To me, it was the perfect picture of what our country was born from - the fight for FREEDOM.  Freedom to worship to God, freedom to sing, freedom to assemble, freedom to be ourselves.

I am thankful to live in this great country.  And, praise God that He has given us the ultimate freedom.
