I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
The American Soldier puts country before them self for the cause of national security and for what’s in our country’s best interest. Some not only gave of their time and talents but many with their very lives. Those are the ones we honor today. Those are the ones who have given the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, so you and I can have freedom! Just like those men and women, we owe our very lives to this great country we live in, if for no other reason—to honor them.
There is One Soldier that fought a different battle though. This Soldier placed upon Himself the sins of the world, not only for the interest of an individual’s spiritual security but for everyone’s best interest. Jesus came to seek that which was lost and in doing so laid down His life for you and I! Each one of us in return need to present our bodies a living sacrifice in order to bring Him honor!
