There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. -John 15:13 NLV


We are entering a weekend called Memorial Day. This is a weekend we remember those who gave their lives… gave them in honor, gave them in passion, gave them in fear, gave them for freedom.

This thought wasn’t just an American thought and celebration with hamburgers and hot dogs…

This was a thought around one man. One cause.


There have been so many for so long that have willingly laid down their lives. A parent for a child, a husband for a wife, a wife for a husband… you get the idea….. Why?



We don’t all have to die to lay it down, it could be that your one love is the simple fact that others are important.

We learn to die to ourselves.

I look death in the face practically every day I live. Do you think I’d do this if I wasn’t convinced of your resurrection and mine as guaranteed by the resurrected Messiah Jesus? 1 Corinthians 15:31 The Message

So…Remember… Remember one love. Remember to love.

Remember that death isn’t always determined by how deep your buried in the earth, but how deep love is in your heart.

I just wanted to encourage you today to remember and here is one thing you should never forget….
