"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself." Joseph Campbell
Today, we pause to remember and honor all who gave their lives in service to our country. They left this world giving their life for something they believed in. Jesus also gave His life for something He believed in...He believed in YOU.
Romans 5:7-8 NLG 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good.8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
Today, I want you to be reminded that God loves you so much and believes that, through Christ, you have the ability to continue His mission on earth. You were left here to continue advancing God's will. God's will is for all to be saved and be filled with the hope found in Christ. Everyday, you are an example to those looking for Christ.
Prayer for the Journey
God, help me to remember that my life, in you, is an example to a hurting world. I give you permission to use my life for the benefit of others. May my light shine forth your glory and draw others into your kingdom.
In Jesus Name, Amen!
