The Price of Freedom March 28, 2016

The men who signed the US Declaration of Independence consisted of lawyers, farmers, merchants, physicians, ministers and politicians. They knew the penalty of their act was death by hanging. Of the fifty six signers, nine died as a result of the war with England, five were imprisoned, and many lost homes and entire families. Not one defected. That freedom, purchased on July 4th, 1776 came at a high price. But there is One other Who purchased freedom for all mankind at a higher price. Jesus left His place in Heaven, suffered shame on earth, and then died on a cross to pay the debt of sin, so that all may be free. Paul the Apostle was inspired to write in the New Testament book of Romans, the following beautiful description of our Saviour’s act. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus Himself said, “If the Son therefore shall set you free, you shall be free indeed.”
