Greater Love Hath No Man Than This: Thoughts on Memorial Day

May 27th, 2007 by Halli

Each year Memorial Day brings us an added opportunity to reflect on the men and women who have given their lives to secure our liberty.

From the Revolutionary War to the conflict in Iraq, nearly countless American lives have been laid down willingly for the benefit and freedom of others. How true it is that “The tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots . . . “.

I cannot help recalling the verse of scripture found in John 15:13:

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

However, as great as is the legacy of the mortal freedom fighters, there is one sacrifice that is still greater than them all.

Only one life, given as an offering for others, could yield both freedom in an eternal sense and new life, even immortality, to those who have perished in freedom’s cause throughout earth’s history.

That one life belongs to Jesus Christ. And so immense and far reaching is this dearly-bought gift which He offers that all, both the great and the small, the honorable and the shameful, the famous and the unknown, will be partakers of the “heavenly gift”.

As we remember this Memorial Day those who have given the last full measure for freedom, even their lives, let us also remember He who is the giver of life, our “author of liberty”.
