He Laid His Life on the Line

SEAL Team Six had prepared for many scenarios as they trained for the raid that ended in the death of Osama bin Laden. One concern they had was that they might have to deal with suicide bombers who were ready to die in order to protect bin Laden.

At one point in the raid, one SEAL noticed a woman whom he perceived might be wearing a suicide vest. He quickly grabbed her and pulled her away from the rest of his team. It turned out that she was not a suicide bomber, but this still qualifies as an amazing act of bravery. This man was willing to give up his own life in order to spare the lives of his companions.

Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”—John 10:11.

Let us never forget the drama that took place at Calvary, where Jesus bravely laid down his life so that we could be saved.
