This week we celebrate Remembrance Day to remember the men and women who served or died to buy our freedom here in Canada and those who are still serving.
Why Remember? If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada.
- In the same way, we were bought with a price by Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 6:20.
- For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
- He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. Romans 4:25
Our freedom is not free! Too many brave men and women paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives to earn us our freedom. Remembrance Day isn’t just about war and those we’ve lost, but about ideals and what we stand for. It’s about respecting our past and looking hopefully forward, and more than anything, thanking those who have served.
Buy a poppy an wear it proudly to remember the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for us!
