Remembering those who died with purpose.
Soldiers died at war for the love they have for thier country and thier loved ones. They died to keep us safe.
Christian Martyrs died for their love of Christ and for the love of people who they are spreading the gospel to.
Jesus Christ died for us even before we believed that he is our savior. Christ chose to die for his friends and for his enemies.
Soldiers die to give us physical freedom and Jesus died to give us eternal freedom.
As we celebrate memorial day today, let us remember those fallen warriors, our fathers and mothers of faith who have worked relentlessly to make sure the baton gets to us and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us keep running the race set before us so that we can also hand over the baton of faith to our children and grandchildren, following the example of Lois and Eunice in the bible, 2 Tim. 1: 1-6.
May God continue to give us more grace in Jesus name. Amen.
