On this Memorial Day I want us to focus on a verse. John 15:13-17…Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. We will dig deep into the fruit known as LOVE tomorrow, but 2 applications of this verse are appropriate for us on this Memorial Day:
- We live in a great country with countless freedoms…including the freedom of religion. That freedom came at a great cost! Today, take some time to reflect on those who in love “laid down their lives” for you. Ask yourself, who/what do you love that you would lay down your life for?
- We have a Loving God who sent His Son Jesus to “lay down His life” for you. The most incredible part of this is Romans 5:8…But God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us! Now that’s unconditional love! Take time today to thank the Lord for His unconditional Love for you. Who do you need to show that kind of love to?
