Would you be ashamed to stand up for the playing of our National anthem? Would you be ashamed to confess that you believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ? Would you be ashamed to publicly confess that you love your spouse and your family? In the last few weeks we have celebrated Thanksgiving Day and Veteran’s Day. When I see on TV the pictures of wounded veterans who have lost arms and legs to roadside explosives, I feel sad for the sacrifices our military folks have made to preserve our freedom in this country and protect us from evil doers. Of all those who have sacrificed themselves for us, none are greater than Jesus Christ. He paid it all that we might live. Let us be thankful and confess our gratitude to Him who died to save us. Ask God to forgive us and give us strength to stand up for Jesus. Stand up for Jesus. He deserves our gratitude.
