Early last month, the people of Holland lined up by the thousands, to honour, greet and thank the returning Canadian veterans present, who had risked their lives to liberate their country from Nazi tyranny 70 years ago. More than 7,600 Canadians died in the campaign. We remember with sadness and gratitude, the thousands who died to bring freedom. These brave ones remind us of an even greater day in history when the Lord Jesus Christ gave His life to procure freedom . George Bennard`s beloved hymn tells the story- “ On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, …And I love that old cross where the dearest and best for a world of lost sinners was slain.” Those words were based on the truth of God`s Word that says Jesus,” Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree.” Let`s never forget those courageous men and woman who died for our freedom. And let`s never forget the One who died to purchase for us a home in Heaven.
