Every year, we celebrate Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and honor Veterans on Veterans Day. We do this to honor those who gave their lives and continue to give their lives to fight for our freedom.

I was lying in bed Friday night thinking about how Jesus paid the ultimate price for our freedom; how He was beaten and mocked, then had nails hammered through his wrists to a cross and then was placed in an empty tomb, but came back three days later. And it got me thinking:

“Why does everyone honor the ones who give their lives but not everyone honors Jesus?”

Is it because we actually know these people or can see these humans right in front of us, fighting for our freedom and can’t see Jesus?

That’s where I’d be wrong.

I can see Jesus.

I can see Him.

I can’t see Him physically, but I can see Him in things that I do, things that other people do. I see Him working in me and other people.

I see Him every single Saturday and Sunday when I look at the kids in my church’s children’s ministry.

Because He is working.

 

May we honor the ones who gave their lives for us and continue to every single day and may God bless them, but let us not forget who first fought for our freedom.

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”-John 8:36
