“STAND fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”
Galatians 5:1 KJV

Today is Memorial Day.  I found this definition for Memorial Day in Webster’s Dictionary “the last Monday in May that is a national holiday in the U. S. honoring members of the armed forces that died in wars”.  As I was thinking about all of the men and women who died for their country, I had tears in my eyes.

Then I started thinking about all the missionaries who have been persecuted for their faith and have given their lives in the service of the greatest Commander of all, the Lord Jesus Christ.  What a privilege it is to be a soldier in the army of the Lord.  Have you enlisted in His army?  Is He your Commander?

If you are a Christian but you aren’t serving Jesus, I urge you to start serving Him today.  When Jesus was here on earth, He served us by spreading unconditional love, forgiveness and mercy.  Jesus left His home, His Father and all that He had to die for our sins on the cross.  What a loving Saviour we have!

Jesus walked that long lonely road to Calvary and allowed them to crucify Him on a cross of torture for your sins and for my sins so we don’t have to be in bondage to satan any more.  Our Saviour set us free with His own blood and He tells us that He doesn’t want us to be entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

As we are remembering the sacrifices that our service men and women made for our country so we may have freedom, remember the greatest Commander of all.  He shed His own blood so that we can live in Heaven with Him for all eternity.  Thank God for the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all sin.
