This is the time of year when we remember our nations struggle for independence and celebrate our freedom as Americans. But we must always remind ourselves that our freedom was bought with a price.

The Cost of Freedom
Many lives were laid down on the battlefields so we could be free—at Bunker Hill, Saratoga, Trenton, and other places. And we must never forget the hardship George Washington's army endured at Valley Forge.

As we remember our heritage during this special time of the year, we often sing our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." In the winds of Valley Forge, when our army faced adversity and disease, those stars and stripes still flew. Our flag stood for freedom then and it stands for freedom today.

The last line of our national anthem asks, "O say, does that start-spangled banner yet wave, O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?" And we can still proudly answer that question in the affirmative—"Yes, those stars and stripes still fly over this country today!"

There are certain things that you and I do not have to endure because the Stars and Stripes flies over this nation. But there are also certain things that we do not have to endure because the blood-stained banner of the Lord Jesus Christ flies over our hearts!

Time to Hit the Road
That banner says to Satan and all of his cohorts, "This territory belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ, and it operates according to the mandates of God' s Word. Satan, you can pack your bags and get out of here!"

Let us remember our heritage today—both as Americans and as the people of God. And let's renew our faith in this country, as well as our faith in God's Word. We have been redeemed from tyranny and can live in freedom because of what the star-spangled banner and the banner of the Lord Jesus Christ stand for.

Always Remember
Let us never forget the thousands who have laid down their lives, and the one man who gave His life, so that we could be free!
