The fallen ones…

This Memorial Day, we honor the thousands of veterans who’ve sacrificed so much for our country. We thank them for their heroic efforts to ensure the safe keeping of our land and its liberty. We salute every one of you for your great strides to keep our nation whole.

America, the land of the free, is a concept our founding fathers brought forth on this continent that all men should be free from tyranny. They acknowledged our Creator as God—the one who created us all equally—and thus paving the way for America to become a nation of liberty and freedom.

There’s also one other who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can be free. Our savior, Jesus Christ. The price he paid was the willing sacrifice of his own life in the most excruciating manner there could ever be. Not just the cruelty of the Roman cross but the beating, scourging, and mocking, along with the weight of our sin. Because we as a people sinned from the beginning, Jesus came to take our place in death and to bear all of our sin, so we can be free from its bondage. Truly, we are only completely free in Jesus.

Consider the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus and those of our Vets this Memorial Day and pray that God will allow our nation to continue in the manner the founding fathers designed.

Thank you, Lord, that we have liberty to worship you in this great land because of the sacrificial efforts of so many, the greatest being your son. May God continue to bless the USA, the greatest nation on God’s earth.
