This past June marked the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944. This event put into motion a plan that would eventually cause the demise of allied enemies in Europe. Although the fighting continued, the end of the war had already been set in motion. On May 8, 1945 – V-E Day brought the war to end as a result of the sacrifice made by many soldiers and all of those before them who gave their lives eleven months earlier, to ensure the final victory.
This historical event should remind us of the spiritual victory God set into motion when He sent His Son Jesus to die as a sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sin. This was our Spiritual D-Day (Colson) that was necessary to free us from our own personal battles with sin. His death and resurrection has provided a way for all of us who believe to be made right with God once and for all. Even though our battle continues in this world, our victory has been secured! Our final victory will come when Christ returns and God’s ultimate plan of heaven on earth will be fulfilled.
On November 11, 2019, please make time to participate in our local ceremonies to remember those who have paid the price for our freedom, then and now. Remember also that God has paid the price so you and I could have a relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ.
If you want to see change with what’s around you, be the change of what’s within you.
