Honoring those who serve and have served

Veterans Day, November 11, is the day we in the United States honor the men and women who serve, or have served,  in the military in the defense of our country. Whether in peacetime or war, these individuals take a vow to serve and to sacrifice. All Americans owe them a profound debt and it is fitting to honor them on this day.

Recent events bring to mind those serving in another field of conflict; soldiers striving in the spiritual battle in the service of God’s kingdom. A little church in rural Texas, on the front line in this battle, recently took severe casualties in the name of Christ.

It is fitting for all Christians to take a few moments when honoring US service people, to remember those who’ve served, and are serving, in the spiritual battle between the forces of good and evil.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 (NAS)

    The Lieutenant Governor of Texas spoke quite clearly on this matter. Grateful for his clear testimony to Christ and how Christians should respond.
