We paused yesterday to remember with gratitude and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives in service for others.
The great virtue of sacrifice for others is exalted to the highest place in the example of Jesus (Mark 10:45; Philippians 2:3-5). He loved us and gave himself up for us.
These words spoken by Jesus offer comfort and hope
- “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave” (Revelation 1:17-18).
- “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying” (John 11:25).
Be sure to aid and pray for the comfort of those who were wounded in battles to defend our freedom. Pray also for those who feel most deeply the pain of loss at this time.
