Veterans’ Day is a time to remember those who have served, and are currently serving, in the military. It is a time to honor those who were willing to sacrifice everything in order for us to gain and to maintain the freedom that we have in the United States of America. Such courage is admirable, and it is fitting that we give these individuals the recognition they deserve.
It is also fitting that we recognize the sacrifice that Jesus made when he willingly went to the cross to die to pay for our sins. His sacrificial death gave us the ability to live in spiritual freedom. We are free from our sins. We are free from the guilt and the penalty of our sins. We are free to live for God and to enjoy all the benefits of this wonderful freedom.
Every time we take communion, we are reminded of the freedom we have in Christ. We are also reminded of the price he had to pay to gain that freedom for us. When we participate in the Lord’s Supper, we give Jesus the honor that only he deserves.
“…Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”—2 Corinthians 3:17.
