We forget the meaning behind this day. Take time today to remember those people who have fought for the freedoms you are enjoying at this very moment.
While we are remembering these heroes, we should also take time to remember the One who gave everything for us and paid the ultimate sacrifice, Jesus Christ. Jesus demonstrated the greatest love for us by laying down His life for us.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
(John 15:13 NIV84)
Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
(Romans 5:7, 8 NIV84)
Take a moment this weekend...to be grateful for the freedoms you have and for the greatest freedom that you can have- freedom from your sins through faith in Jesus Christ. If you do not yet know this freedom, I encourage you to go to: http://peacewithgod.jesus.net/god-so-loved-the-world/ or email JOY Blog at: joyfilledgirls [at] hotmail [dot] com.
