Happy Memorial Day my friends!
Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men, and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
Today we are celebrating the fallen heroes. The one’s who stood strong in the battle, until death stood at their doorstep. They didn’t bend, they didn’t give in, they stood STRONG for their country, and their freedom.
Have you ever stopped to think what freedom cost us? If you stop to think about it, freedom requires sacrifice, someone out-there is fighting, and sacrificing their life, so you can have yours. Freedom is someone giving up their family, freedom is someone sacrificing their son, daughter. Freedom is someone going to battle, so the nation can be at Peace.
God has done the very same thing!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son[sacrifice], that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.[freedom] [John 3:16]
Yes WE celebrate our heroes, give honor to the fallen soldiers, but let us also give HONOR to whom it’s DUE.
JESUS- THE GREATEST HERO!
JESUS has put his life, on the line for all of us. He has DIED to set us FREE. Before we even knew him, or recognized him, he has already paid the price, to set us free from prison, and bondage of sin.
Today as we celebrate our fallen heroes, let us remember the one who changed the world, through sacrifice on the cross, for all humanity.
