“And they overcame him [the accuser] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Revelation 12:11 (NKJV)
The verse from Revelation chapter 12 is a good one for the spirit of this day. We remember that countless patriots have given “the last great measure of their devotion” in behalf of our country. And the Word of God reminds us of the faithful Christian martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for our King. Above all, our Lord Jesus Christ gave His life as a substitutionary sacrifice for sinners, to redeem us and reconcile us to God! May there never be a day in which we fail to remember the blood of the Lamb, and the testimony He has given to us in the Gospel! These are the only means by which we overcome the world, the flesh, and the devil.
