One of the tricks that the devil uses to get people to turn away from
God is to cause us to forget about God and what He has done.He wants us to forget all of God’s blessings toward us. Of course, the greatest blessing from God is that He has sent His Son, Jesus Christ to sacrifice His blood on the cross to free us from the bondage of our sin.I hope you have accepted His wonderful gift of salvation.
There is also a subversive social plan to get us to forget the sacrifices of past generations. Many think that we deserve our liberty and we can ignore the fact that our freedom cost of millions of lives.The present generations take those blessings for granted and sooner or later that which is taken for granted will be lost. Once they are lost the only way to regain them is to pay the price again. That’s what Remembrance Day is for.If we remember the great cost of freedom, we are less likely to have to suffer the loss of lives to secure it.
Those in our armed forces chose to serve their country to make it a better country. They didn’t necessarily choose to die for but to live to serve their country, and for the preservation of our freedom.
It would take great love to choose to go to fight, knowing that you were going to die for someone you love, but never has there been
any individual that has chosen to die for his enemies.
We Must remember the One who died in our place.Jesus Christ chose to die for you when you were his enemy.There could be no greater love than that.
Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.
