Today marks Remembrance Day around the world:
“At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare.” (taken from the Australian War Memorial website)
We give thanks to God for those who made the ultimate sacrifice to provide and protect the freedoms and life we enjoy in Australia today. We honour and proclaim what was done for us.
In his letter to Timothy, Paul wrote: ‘Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel’ (2 Timothy 2:8 NIV)
To remember includes recalling, honouring and proclaiming our great rescue through King Jesus. Let us not only remember Jesus, but also honour and proclaim his great redemptive death and resurrection. Don’t forget or let gratitude grow cold!
