What Price Sacrifice?

"Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many."  Matthew 20:28 

Happy Memorial Day!  On this very special holiday my mind is wandering over the beauty of the quality of sacrifice, the ultimate being that of God sending His only beloved Son to die for us so that He could redeem us to Him and restore privilege, freedom, and favor in our lives.

This same wonderful spirit exists in each and every service person who is right now sacrificing (or who has done so in the past) so that we might enjoy privilege and freedom as American citizens.  Some, like our Saviour, have even made the supreme sacrifice of giving up their lives in the fight.

Whether you be Air Force, Army, Marines, or Navy, know that you are thought of and appreciated on both this and every day and that special prayers are going up on your behalf.  Thank you for your sacrifice.

  1. This is beautiful, and I concur. It takes a very special person, with a very special kind of love to put him/her self in such a position; knowing there may be no return. My prayers, love, and appreciation go out to all of these noble ones, both past and present. We must remember them, and the families they left behind, every day.
