Crumbs – Freedom, Responsibility and Mission Possibe

                                                              

At this moment, oppressed people in other countries are fighting for their freedom. And yet, freedom without responsibility can not last. Pray for God to protect these brave people from a fate worse than the one they have fought to escape. ELW

                                                                                

“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.” Ronald Reagan

                                                                               

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” Ronald Reagan

                                                

“I run in the path of your commands (Word), for you have set my heart free.” Psalm 119:32

                                                                              

“One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes… and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.” Eleanor Roosevelt

                                                                                            

     “Life has meaning only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle!” Stevie Wonder

   “Resist him (the devil), standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers, throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” I Peter 5:9-10

                                                                                                                            

Our mission, should we decide to accept it is to embrace God’s truth and allow Him to set us free. Not only for eternity, but experientially in the here and now. Jesus paid a great price for our spiritual freedom. Now we have the responsibility to guard against the bondage of deception, despair and disappointment in our daily lives. How? By applying God’s truth and trusting the Holy Spirit to guide us and protect our freedom. ELW                                                                   

“Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.” Richard Bach
