On Independence Day

So it's the 4th of July, and everybody seems to have "Freedom" or "Independence" themed posts. Since I hadn't prepared anything according to that theme, I want to link to a post called What Price Freedom? by Dan Phillips on PyroManiacs. I think that for anyone reading today it will be most beneficial in focusing your thoughts on where they should be, and helping us to always be Biblical in our understanding of freedom, even on this Independence Day.

Here's a sample:
Americans enjoy freedom today because of the blood spilt by thousands of men and women from before 1776 until this very day. Our freedom, as Americans, is not free. If it hasn’t cost us personally, it surely has cost someone else!

But my mind turns today to a far deeper bondage, however, and an infinitely greater freedom — and to the far more dreadful price that was paid for that freedom.

It is found in Revelation 1:5b: “To Him who loves us, and loosed us from our sins by His blood.
