Blessed Veteran’s Day

This weekend most of the United States changed their clocks back an hour. Has it changed your perspective in any way? Has it put a “new light” on your morning? Do you also need a “fresh light” on your perspective of God?

Who do you say is God? Does that affect who you say that you are? What’s in a name? (See the section near the bottom of this page.)

Thank you to the Lord Jesus Christ who gave His life for us and our salvation. Thank you also to the brave people who have served in the military to give their lives for us and for our freedom.

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. (Romans 13:1 KJV)

For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. ( Luke 7:8)

Veteran’s day is a day set aside to honor those who have served in the military. When a person is in the military, they are in the “Service” of their country. What does that mean? As the verses above say, it means that the person acknowledges the authorities over them and submits willingly to the orders given to them by those in authority.

God tells us to honor those in authority over us because God gives all authority. That is true in the government of the church and in the family, as well as in national or local governments. If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are also a soldier in His army. Are you a Godly soldier? Do you obey the orders Christ gives you through those in authority over you? Do you obey the civil law and the spiritual law?

Many people have fought and died for our freedoms. Don’t they deserve to be honored? Today we salute and honor those who have fought on our behalf.

Christ died so that you might have LIFE and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY. Doesn’t He deserve your loyalty?

Whether or not you have ever been in an army established by an earthly government, you are called to be a soldier of the Living God and His Kingdom. We also salute and honor those who have faithfully served in the Army of God.
