Living Memorial

The question popped into my head just a few seconds ago, “Why don’t we have a Memorial Day for the greatest Warrior who ever lived, Jesus Christ?”  and then immediately I realized, “We do!!!  Easter!”   Not only do we memorialize His death, but we also memorialize His birth by celebrating Christmas.  The only problem is the genuineness with which we remember.

When we pay tribute to fallen military men and women, as we did yesterday, we truly recognize the great sacrifice they made on behalf of maintaining freedom for us.  Do we do the same at Easter and Christmas.  Or is it more about the bunny and the chocolate and the Santa and the presents?  Why have Jesus’ two Memorial Day holidays been so commercialized they have almost lost their true meaning, but Memorial Day is so genuine and not commercialized?

I want to give a heartfelt thanks to every veteran who has ever given their life as a living sacrifice by serving to maintain the freedom of this great country…the greatest country ever!  But I want to be a living memorial to the greatest Living Sacrifice ever, Jesus Christ!

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Father, Your word endures forever.  Jesus is the Greatest Veteran.  Thank you for giving your Son for our freedom.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
