Morning by Morning, November 11 - Veteran's Day -- Sacrifice of Love for Us
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Put Your thoughts in my mind and Your desires in my heart, as I seek to humble myself to hear Your voice and pray by the leading of Your Spirit. ...
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends" (John 15:13 NKJV).
On this Veteran's Day, we honor the men and women who have loved and served our nation with their lives for our freedom. All have sacrificed, many with the ultimate sacrifice, that we might be secure at home and source of strength for good in our world. Their great love deserves our great respect and honor -- this day and every day.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your sacrifice of love for us. You endured the cross to lay down Your life for each one of us. "We do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone" (Hebrews 2:9). There is no greater love.
As the people of a free nation, under God, may we honor our veterans and may we honor our Savior. May we live our lives today and every day in a way at honors Your sacrifice and theirs for us. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
Tommy, I pray your life today will honor our Savior and those who have been willing to sacrifice their lives for us, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. And I join with you in prayer for America to be a nation under God, honoring the Lord our God with the gifts and calling He has entrusted to us as a nation in our world. God bless you, my friend!
