The word for you today is from John 15:13 (AMP)
'No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends.'
It’s Veterans Day in America…
This is a day where we honor all veterans for their service, their sacrifice and their cause of peace and freedom to our nation and to all people. Many have laid down their lives, many have been severely injured… and many have even suffered unimaginable torture and pain so that other could live in peace and freedom. We honor and thank each veteran who selflessly gave so that others could live the blessed life!
Jesus is the ultimate veteran!
Jesus left Heaven, fought the devil, defeated him, canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities and shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross. (Colossians 2:14-15)
I encourage you to take some time to say a prayer for all of our veterans, take some time to do something thoughtful for a veteran who gave his or her all for our freedom… and then take some time to worship Jesus for giving His life for every undeserving sinner, making all that would accept His free, yet costly gift the righteousness of God in Christ!
