Remember Our Friends

As we enter this Memorial Day weekend, I pray that each of us can take the time to remember those who have given their life in service to this country. Not only those who died, but all who serve or have served this country that we love.
Memorial Day is not only to remember our military sacrifices, but also to remember our loved ones, our family and friends, who we miss each day.
Enjoy the weekend and hear these words from Jesus. His death frees us from our sin and gives us eternal life.
John 15:12-17 NIV
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
