…there is reason to celebrate the fact that we live in a country whose form of government is rooted in democracy. The freedom to voice our opinions and vote in our election process was paid for with the blood of our Continental soldiers over 200 years ago [and 1,346,000+ US men and women warriors].
But even more importantly, this is a good season to be reminded that your freedom to choose Christ was also purchased with blood. The blood of Jesus shed on the cross for you 2000 years ago. Scripture says it this way:
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
