We celebrate the nation’s independence in just a few weeks. When God created the world, he put the desire for freedom in Adam and Eve’s heart, saying they were free to choose to eat from any tree in the garden, but he asked them not to eat from one tree that was in the middle of the garden. That gave them, not only a choice between the various fruits but also a choice to either eat from forbidden or from the many fruits that were not forbidden. We are still free to obey or disobey.
Is there any doubt in your mind that we are Adam and Eve’s offspring? As I watch the deviation of the Ukrainian War I can’t help crying, knowing how disappointed God must be that Russia has chosen to disobey him. And as I see the aftermath of an 18-year-old with a AR 15, knowing that he had misused his God given freedom to murder innocent children and their teachers.
How well do you use the freedom God has given you? How well is this country using it’s freedom?
