This weekend we remember those who have gone before us, in sacrifice, in glory, in wartime, and in peacetime. Those who risked everything to preserve the freedom we enjoy today, and who’s action and courage allow us to lead such blessed and rewarding lives.
In this week’s sermon, “Remember Those Who Have Gone Before”, Bob helps us to remember those brave men and women of the military who gave all they had to make our world a better place today and who persevered our freedom. And as Christians, we have a long list of martyrs in history who have died for their faith in God, their country, their families or all of these.
Some you have definitely heard of: others maybe not. But it’s important that we do more with Memorial day than just enjoy the extra long weekend. As Bob states it in his closing prayer, “Thank you seems inadequate when we’re dealing with someone’s death, sacrificial death, either on the battle field as a martyr, or dying for the sins of the world.”.
