Remember, Remember

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

I discovered this line recently from a movie called "'V' for Vendetta." It comes from a story back in 1605 where an Englishman named Guy Fawkes plotted to destroy Parliment. The words became a poem that was read, along with a sermon or speech to remind the English of the cost of betraying England.

The movie touches that subject rather violently. The poem is turned into a revolutionary cry for England to return to a free state. In a rather interesting way and with some artistic flare, the idea of treason is turned into the revolution of freedom. I liked the movie, and I love the quote.

For me, I see no reason to forget the 12th of June. It was a revolutionary day. At one point the world existed for me as controlled, deluded, and treasonous. Then, I met someone who told me all about how to be free.

Now, I am free. I am free to live my life under the constant care of the one who made it. I belong to my Father, and he has made me free. Now, I stand for justice, peace, and true love.

I live in a world that is ripe for revolution. Too many people believe in a lie that whatever they feel is right. Too many people believe that a moment can be love. Too many people believe that justice is what feels good for them.

There is nothing like living in slavery. People who live in a world with this sort of truth, this sort of love, and this sort of justice live in a state of control. What they do not know is that they are not in control. Someone else is!

Each and every person is offered something God wants everyone to have. Freedom. Freedom to live life with joy, peace, faith, and love. It starts with a revolution, on a day that you won't forget. A day when you declare your life to be lived with God.
