Memorial Day

Take some time today to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made to allow you the freedom you enjoy. 

This is a day that's set aside to specifically remember those who have died serving our country in the military. It's sad, but many are fighting to give up the rights that others died to obtain. Our military should be honored, and the sacrifices always remembered and appreciated. 

We are so blessed to live in a country where our freedom to worship, serve God and share the gospel has been fought for and protected. There are still Christians in many countries who must do it in secret, and they risk their lives and that of their family if they are caught. Even with the risk of torture and death, the fire within them burns hot and unquenchable. The pressure against them serves as a catalyst to their passion to seek and serve Jesus! They are unstoppable and even in their death the gospel continues to spark a blaze in others. 

In a country where we have complete freedom... there's less of an appreciation for the opportunities we have. Our brothers and sisters in other areas may have to share Bibles, only have a few pages of God's Word, or only dream of holding this Holy book in their hand. Yet, in America, they collect dust on a shelf, rarely opened, much less obeyed. The blessed life we have been given keeps us too busy to fit time with God into our day and He is given the leftovers instead of the first fruits. 

On this Memorial Day you should certainly remember all those who have sacrificed all for your freedom, but also take time to remember the one who gave all for your soul. Reevaluate your relationship with Him and give Him the proper place in your life. 

Thank a veteran for the price they paid for your earthly freedom and thank Jesus for the price He paid for the freedom from the shame of your sin and the grip of the enemy!

Psalm 77:11 (NKJV) I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely, I will remember Your wonders of old.

Galatians 5:13 (NKJV) For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 

Romans 8:5-8 (NKJV) For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 

John 3:16 (KJV) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
