"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends."
John Bunyan, the author of the classic book, Pilgrims Progress, said, "You haven't lived today until you've done something for someone who cannot pay you back."
That is such a powerful truth, and few people in America understand its meaning as well as those who serve in the U.S. military.
Since America's struggle for independence from Britain to today's global war against terrorism, countless men and women have answered duty's call. They have performed a tremendous service that cannot be repaid. And untold numbers have made the ultimate sacrifice… giving their life's blood for the cause of freedom.
Maybe you are the loved one or a friend of one of these who has died for our country. If so, you, too, have made a sacrifice that many cannot even imagine. But Jesus recognized just such sacrifice in John 15:13 when he said, "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends."
This Memorial Day, let's remember the courageous men and women who have given their lives to ensure our freedom… or to give the precious gift of freedom to another nation.
May their patriotism and their love for God and country inspire us to do something selfless for our fellow man.
"YOU HAVEN'T LIVED TODAY UNTIL YOU'VE DONE
SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE WHO CANNOT PAY YOU BACK."

At some point, everyone goes through a difficult season, left wondering when God would come through. That’s why I want to send you my new booklet, God’s Promises for Doubt-Filled Days.
In this booklet, I share how the tragedy of my father’s murder revealed to me God’s steady comfort during times of trial. And I share in this booklet the four promises God makes as you search for comfort in the midst of your doubts.
God’s Promises for Doubt-Filled Days is my gift to thank you for your online donation to PowerPoint today, so please request it when you give.
It’s my prayer this resource will help you see how God works his good plans in you—especially during doubt-filled days!
