On Memorial Day I am thankful for those who have sacrificed their lives for the privilege to live in this country. Heroes they are. But what about the rest of us? Are we letting them down as citizens? What did they fight for? I for one am calling on everyone to be laying down our lives every day for each other and our country – instead of simply living for ourselves as we are so prone to do.
Ultimately, of course, Christians love to serve their country because they love The Lord and because thy are members of a far greater kingdom – the Kingdom of God. They love to serve their fellow man and sacrifice their lives because of the sacrifice made for them by their Lord and Savior. May God bless us all with grace and strength for the day – and love and devotion to our fellow man within the borders of our country – and most certainly then beyond!
If there needs to be someone who falls on the battlefield for my well being and for the sake of peace and order – I want him/her to know that this country is grounded in Godly virtue and noble lives of service. It starts with each of us in repentance and a fleeing to Christ! May God help us!
