Stepped Up To Serve

Today is a legal holiday.

"And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; foryou serve the Lord Christ (Colossians 3:23-24 NKJV)."
Those who served, in any of the branches of the military, now serve as examples to you and me.
Jesus is the ultimate example.
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45 NKJV)."
