|Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends|
|Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.|
Today we recognize the brave soldiers who've died defending our country. They have given us the gift of freedom with their lives, and for that, we are deeply indebted to them and their families.
The ultimate sacrifice for our eternal freedom was made by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. While we were still sinners, he laid down his life for us so that we might live. (Romans 5:8)
