From the Director’s Heart By JOHN Ogden Sr. Similarly, Jesus has given us the gift of salvation. This gift gives us freedom from sin, and while salvation is free, it required Jesus’ life for us to have the opportunity to experience it. As we celebrate our country’s independence, we must ask ourselves, what am I willing to give that others may be free? In Romans 10:13-15 (KJV) we read; “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16, NIV). I travel throughout the world and the United States, I find that this is the best place to live with the most freedom of any country. We are a blessed people living in a blessed country. We have the privilege to live in a free country, and we have the freedom to worship God. The freedom we have is not free. Those who have lived before us have paid for this freedom. Our forefathers made great sacrifices for us to have this freedom; with many paying the ultimate price for this gift called freedom. I am very thankful for the freedoms we have and thankful for the men and women who have given us these freedoms. 04⎪⎪July 2016 As peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” What better way is there to celebrate our own freedom than by helping someone else find true freedom in Christ?
