Both redemption and freedom are costly privileges. We must never forget the cost of liberty or abuse the privilege. The east coast boasts the stature of liberty. We should erect another on our west shore called the statue of responsibility.
The hope of the cross can not only be viewed on a hill far away. It can be seen by a needy world only when we pay the cost to carry it on our journey of life. Thank you to all who have paid the price for freedom and to the ONE who paid for my redemption. Happy fourth and an ecstatic forever.
