Remembering the Sacrifices of Others on this Memorial Day...

Today is Memorial Day... it is the day that we set aside once a year to remember those who have fallen in the service of our country... the day we remember those who gave all they had to give so that we might remain free from tyranny and oppression... that we might continue to enjoy the liberties that we prize so highly here in America. Let us remember in prayer those who have fallen and their families.

But there is another who gave all that He had in order to bring us freedom from tyranny and oppression... but He did not die only for the those of us here in America, but rather He gave His all for all of humanity, that we might all enjoy freedom from the tyranny and oppression that sin and death bring to our lives. His death brought us life, victory and triumph. Therefore, let us also on this Memorial Day remember and give thanks for Jesus, the Christ, the One who laid His life down on the battlefield for our very souls... and together let us say, "Thanks be to God who gives us the victory over sin and death through Christ our Lord!"
