Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
While the millionaire professional football players are protesting and disrespecting our veterans, we are continually honoring them. Veterans Day is an important day to remember and pay respect to our heroes past and present. Because of the Veterans we are allowed to express our opinions and even openly practice our faith in Jesus Christ
One Veteran I will always remember is my father, who did three tours in Vietnam for our freedom. Because of him and other heroes like him, we are able to grow up and live in the greatest country in the world. Christians should be very grateful for our Veterans, without them we might not even have Churches, like other countries where Christians are being persecuted and even killed.
When I think of the word Veteran, I think of the word “sacrifice”. Because every Veteran was willing to lay down there lives for the freedom of our country. As American citizens we should not forget the sacrifice they paid to allow us to have a better life. Freedom is never free, it comes with a price of sacrifice.
The greatest sacrifice is what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. Even though we were sinners and didn’t deserve it, he laid down his life for us, so that we can be redeemed. Remember what our Lord Jesus did for us, and remember our Veterans in Jesus Name Amen
