*Pastor’s Note: With all that is going on in the world and especially our nation, we STILL need to thank our Heavenly Father that there are men and women willing to put their lives on the line for something greater than themselves. Most people remember the fallen soldiers in our military, but I want to include our Law Enforcement officers and first responders that were doing a job to also keep us safe. Today is a day we remember those that did just that and we remember not just the ones that have fallen in service to others, but those that served and have since passed on. I for one appreciate all they have done for me and my family and for the blessings that we enjoy still to this day. I truly thank our Heavenly Father, God Almighty, that He still inspires men and women for service to a greater good. God bless each and everyone that is honoring a family member or friend today!
Jesus Himself stated: “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13.
For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. – Romans 5:7.
We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. – 1 John 3:16.
