“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” – John 15:13
Today, we pay tribute and honor to every fallen soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live free. There is no greater country on this earth: past, present, or future, than the United States of America. This country is so great because our Founding Fathers dedicated this land to God Almighty. These United States of America have prospered like no other country or civilization because of our covenant with the Father of all fathers.
And the brave men and women who have given their lives freely and without condition because of their great and unselfish love for this great Nation deserve our profound respect and gratitude. This country is the land of the free because of the brave—our fallen and unsung heroes who have protected us with their very lives to keep us safe and sound.
And now they are home, resting in the eternal arms of the One who made it possible for every one of us to return to our eternal home. To our fallen heroes: you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith, and you now wear the crown of righteousness (2 Timothy 4:17). Men and women of our armed forces, you are God’s sons and daughters of thunder! And we are so very proud to be Americans because of you! We are so profoundly proud of you! And we thank you for your service to God and country.
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do it today, right now, by saying this prayer out loud: “Jesus, forgive me for my sins. I am sorry. I truly desire to be saved and reconciled back to God, my Father, through You. I receive Your sinless Blood as payment in full for my sins—past, present, and future. I now call You my Lord and Savior, and invite You to live within my heart, and to permanently live within me. I make You Lord over me and over my life from this moment on. Amen.” Congratulations! You are now a child of God, made whole and made new, by the Blood of Jesus Christ!
