Memorial Day

When I think of Memorial Day, I think of one word Sacrifice. Memorial Day is not a day we celebrate victories or even promote our country. But it’s a day we reflect upon the sacrifices made by soldiers, that accomplish those victories and establish our nation.

The word Sacrifice means an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else more important. When we talk about soldiers making a sacrifice its not just about losing their life, they also sacrificed relationships, sacrificed dreams, sacrificed inner peace, sacrificed marriages , children , and families. Every soldier sacrificed something for the line of duty

So the question is why do we celebrate Memorial Day? Because without the soldiers sacrifice we wouldn’t be able to worship God right now. Without the sacrifice of soldiers we wouldn’t have any of the freedoms that we take for granted today. Right now in China currently, their government in burning down Christian churches, burning Bibles, and imprisoning and killing Christians. There are many other countries throughout the world that persecute people because of their freedoms and beliefs.

So if your grateful for any of the freedoms that you enjoy today, thank a Soldier!, if your grateful you can worship in freedom , thank a soldier. If your thankful you can voice your opinions without persecution or imprisonment , thank a soldier. To deny thanks to these soldiers is to deny your freedom exist

    A willingness to sacrifice yourself on behalf of others is the most admirable quality. John 15:13 says, “No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his life in behalf of his friends.” I pray we are able to see these soldiers again in the resurrection (John 5:28,29) and that soon our world will be peaceful and soldiers will no longer need to make this ultimate sacrifice.
