We Honor Our Veterans

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave” – Elmer Davis 

     Today and everyday, we at Spirit Filled Church, want to say “God bless our Veterans.” As born-again Christian Americans, we know the value of those who stand up to protect our God given rights. I am thankful for every man and woman who has served their country in the military. Often I see young men and women who are volunteering for duty and I am amazed how young they are, really just kids going off to war and possibly giving their limbs and lives to help keep us safe. God bless each and everyone of you.
     When I think about sacrifice, I always think of the price our Lord and Savior paid for our freedom. Freedom from invisible chains that hold captives in prison. Only Jesus can really set us free, and guarantee eternal life for all who will chose Him as Lord and Savior.
     As we think about soldiers today, I am reminded that the Bible has a lot to say about that subject. 2 Timothy 2:4 No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. Verse 3 Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
     Jesus is reminding us that we must be focused on serving Him and well trained to fight against the wiles of the devil. This spiritual war will not last forever, but our spirits will. So we must turn from the flesh and build the spirit that will be with Jesus for eternity.
