Jesus, Professor Robert George, John Streets discussed on The Daily Article
Not deter us from remembering with gratitude. Those who died for our freedoms as I reflected yesterday and more than one million women and men who died that we might live. I read John Streets. Memorial Day Callum. John's breakpoint articles are always excellent. But this one especially impressed me in it. John shared a story. Chuck Colson once told to honor Memorial Day. It was February. Nineteen forty five three months before World War Two ended in Europe. Eighteen year old sergeant. Joseph George was stationed in France and was preparing to go out on evening patrol his friend private. James Cottle volunteered to take his place. He pointed out that at age thirty six. He was nearly twice as old as George. He told him you're young. Go home get married. Live a full rich life. Then private coddle went out on patrol a few hours later he was killed by a German sniper. Sergeant Joseph George returned home safely he married and fathered five sons one of them. Princeton Professor Robert George has been identified by The New York Times as this country's influential conservative thinker. Dr George and his brother will always know that their father survived the war because his friend died in his place. I say a fifty is one of the suffering servant sections of the book each Ford told. What our Savior would experience centuries later in Isaiah fifty four the servant? Jesus testifies the Lord. God has given me the tongue of those who are taught that I may know how to sustain with the word him who is weary morning by morning he awakens. He Awakens my ear. To hear is those who are taught our Lord would pay a terrible price to speak such truth. I gave my back to those who strike and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard. I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting the prophet foretold. Jesus is treatment before he was executed. Pilot took Jesus and flogged him. Then in Matthew. Twenty seven the Roman soldiers spit on him and took the read and struck him on the head and when they had mocked him they stripped him of his robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him. You and I will live forever because our saviour died in our place now we have a binary choice we can allow. Jesus is horrific sacrificed to be an event like Memorial Day that we remember occasionally with gratitude or we can allow the one who died so we could live to lead us into life in all its fullness today in these dark pandemic days we can claim this promise from. Isaiah fifty ten who among you fears the Lord and obeys the Voice of his servant? Let Him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God or we can refuse to follow our savior as our king. We can choose our business over quiet moments to listen for his voice. We can insist on walking in the light of our own self sufficiency. Rather than the revelation of his will but note this warning. Behold all you who kindle a fire who equip yourselves with burning torches walked by the light of your fire and by the torches that you have kindled this. You have for my hand usual lie down in torment tomorrow. We will define some practical ways to hear and follow the living voice of our living saviour for today. Let's decide that we want to like those. We remembered with deep gratitude yesterday. Jesus died that we might live but unlike anyone else in history he rose from his grave and is as real relevant and powerful in our world. Today as when I walked our planet he will speak to us. If we will listen he will lead us. If we will follow he will cleanse us from all sin if we will confess our sins with repentance. He will sanctify us. If we will be sanctified. I believe that Jesus is grieving for those who remember what he did for them on the cross but give little thought to what he can do in them today but he is rejoicing with those who are experiencing his living presence power and peace. Which is true for you today. If you.
