The Price of Liberty

An early American patriot helped to encourage a nation to gain its freedom by stating the price he was willing to pay for it. "Give me liberty," he said, "or give me death!" When the Apostle Paul's friends begged him not to go to Jerusalem, fearing that he would be captured and bound, Paul answered (Acts 21: 13), "I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."

To the American patriot death was the alternative to freedom. To Paul there was no alternative, for freedom and life in Christ were to him synonymous. This life was indestructible. As Christ Jesus said (John 11:26), "Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die."
