This week's Encouragement

“This is My commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this: that he lay down his life for his friends."

- John 15:12-13

Yeshua's words are particularly touching this Memorial Day as we remember and honor those who have laid down their lives for our country and our freedom. Today, let us consider each of these a dear friend. Though we pray that none of us would be called upon to make this ultimate sacrifice for our nation, we are called to sacrifice for those we love as Yeshua sacrificed His life for us. We are to live as He did in sacrifices of praise, thanksgiving, and service. How are we each showing the love of Messiah to our family, friends, and mishpocha? Are we willing to sacrifice time, finances, or our own comfort to comfort others? We all have room to grow into the likeness of Yeshua. In honor of the sacrifices of others, may we each strive this Memorial Day to live sacrificial lives.
