Fresh Hope – Day 303

Lest we forget. 

To forget those who paid for our freedom is to be ungrateful, but to forget those for whose freedom we live, is to be unmindful. 

To remember by looking back is good, but to remember by reaching forward is better. 

To celebrate our heritage with one day is enough, so long as every day, we celebrate our freedom by doing for others what they cannot do for themselves.

The past is meaningless, the death of a loved one purposeless, and life is pointless unless we too give ourselves wholeheartedly.

The greatest act of love is to give yourself on behalf of others…even to the point of death. 

Jesus himself paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving His life willingly, so that we can be forgiven. 

Remembering that event purely as a page in history is not enough; we have to make it personal, in that we understand that He gave is life for ME.

Being grateful of that for the first time is a wonderful day in your life, but don’t just be grateful…actually invite Jesus into your life today. 

You’ll find that life makes sense when you know and not just know about the one that loved you and gave His life for you. 

1 John 3:16-18 ‘This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.’
