Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

Once a year, near the beginning of summer, Americans celebrate a day set aside to honor the brave men and women who gave their lives in service to this nation on different fields of battle. When you properly recognize the true meaning of Memorial Day (and it’s not about another day off from work, picnics, or big sales), you communicate to the friends and family of the fallen this simple message: “I remember…and I’m grateful.” warriors have made to protect your freedom is a picture, albeit an imperfect one, of these sacrifice God made when He sent His Son to die for a humanity that was a slave to its own sinfulness. The apostle Paul put it beautifully when he wrote, “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

On Memorial Day, take a few moments to think about those who made ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms of people they didn’t even know. And never forget the sacrifice of the God who knows everything about you but still chose to give you the very best He had.
