Memorial Day is a special time when we celebrate both the fallen and active members of our military. Through their dedicated service and selfless sacrifice, they have blessed us with the gift of a free society.
As we honor them this holiday, let’s also remember the most precious gift ever given, salvation. Through the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we have received a different kind of freedom. Sin and shame no longer have a hold on us. We have been set free from them for all eternity!
These Courageous Bible Verses for Memorial Day celebrate the freedom we have in knowing Jesus, remind us of His great sacrifice and give us the courage to face each new challenge.
May you be blessed with courage, and live free in Jesus today!
