Daily Devotional - The Ultimate Sacrifice
🧡 Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "Broken Vessel (Amazing Grace)" by Hillsong Worship. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
💜 Daily Verse: There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
☆ John 15:13 NLT
💛 Let's Talk About It: Today is a day our country remembers those who have paid the ultimate price. Millions of soldiers have laid down their life for their fellow brothers in arms and countrymen. Their sacrifice does not go unnoticed and they are never forgotten.
If anyone understands and exemplifies the verse above, it's Christ. He made the ultimate sacrifice, and in doing so saved all of humanity. He understands what the survivors must be feeling and He understands the gift that each individual gave as they took their last breath on the battlefield.
For those family members of the fallen, you are in our prayers today. May God comfort you, and bring peace during this time. Thank YOU for your sacrifice as well. Life is not the same when an integral person is missing. We lift you up and thank God for loving you, comforting you, and never leaving. Even in the midst of our pain, He is with us. Hallelujah!
💙 Additional Reading: “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.
☆ John 10:11 NLT
❤ Prayer: Lord, if anyone understands what love is, it's you. Thank you, Father, for this day. As we remember the fallen, I pray for peace on Earth. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Be those who are mourning today, Lord, and help me to love others like you do, sacrificially. I love you Jesus and in your name I pray, amen.
