Salute

26 05 2014

I’m in the Lord’s army.

I’m in the Lord’s army.

I may never march in the infantry,

Ride in the cavalry,

Shoot the artillery.

I may never fly o’er the enemy,

But I’m in the Lord’s army.

 

This children’s song finds little ones marching, flying, and saluting. It teaches them that while we are grateful for the service men and women who carry weapons and protect our freedoms, we are called as Christians to serve the Lord in an army of grace. Faith, righteousness, and hope are the tools that we carry into the everyday battles that wear at our souls.

 

Is there someone you know who has faithfully served in the Lord’s army? Has their encouragement, willingness to speak light into the darkness, or ability to love impacted your heart? Those who teach, serve, give, pray, hug, and sacrifice stand every day on the front line of freedom. Little actions open doors that invite others to step out of the conflict that rages around us and into the peace that comes from above. Everybody faces battles. Those in the Lord’s army are commissioned to bring light and hope into the darkness of the battleground.

 

Today, we remember with thankful hearts those who valued freedom more than their own lives. As we do, let’s also be grateful for those who faithfully serve in the Lord’s army. Salute someone who lives their life in surrender so that we might see how to walk with Him in victory.

 

My Jesus Resolution today is to give honor to those to whom honor is due. A salute is an action which expresses respect and recognition. Today I salute those men and women, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, and children and friends who sacrifice daily for our national freedoms. I also want to salute those godly men and women who have stood long and fought faithfully that I might know Him better, follow Him closer, and live with Him forever.
