Memorial Day is the day we honor our men and women who died while serving and protecting our United States. Many sacrificed their lives fighting in wars against our enemies. The United States of America is a great country. And those who fought deserve our respect and honor. We need to remember in tangible ways what they fought for as we are losing those very freedoms for which they paid the ultimate price protecting and defending.
As people prepare for the long holiday weekend we have our parades, American flags are put in the cemeteries and there are many ceremonies to honor our Service men and women. People will be swarming to the beaches, getting together with family and friends, throwing steaks or burgers on the grills and perhaps watching the big race on television. This is good and fine but there is much greater reason for celebration on a daily basis, even in the world of war, pain and death we live in. There is Hope for true freedom and peace in the future!
Personally, I choose an everyday celebration no matter how I feel or what the bad news is. There is Always Good News! Jesus Christ gave His life as a Sacrifice for the sins of the world that we may choose to have everlasting life. A sacrifice had to made to save us from our sin. Sin separates us from God and the wages of sin is death. Jesus paid the price so you and I do not have to pay. John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
Salvation is priceless, precious and a FREE Gift to us; yet is the greatest sacrifice in the history of mankind.
The Cross of Calvary is a story of God loving us so much He sent His beloved Son, Jesus Christ to restore a relationship that was broken. Jesus did not have to die for us, but He chose to because it was His Father’s will and because He loves us. He gave up His life of His own accord In John 10, He states that only He has the power to lay down His life. He proved His power over death by His resurrection. He Lives -you can go visit His empty tomb if you want.
Know what God desires most? He wants a relationship with His Creation – us. That is what God desires most. God so love the world that He gave… Truly this is the sacrifice worth remembering and the life worth celebrating. We are free indeed; the Ultimate Peace Treaty was paid in full by the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Thank You LORD for saving my soul, Thank You LORD for making me whole, Thank You LORD for giving to me, Thy Great Salvation so Rich and Free.
