French Lieutenant Colonel Arnaud Beltrame was acclaimed as a hero recently. During a terrorist attack in France, he took the place of a young woman. The woman was freed, unfortunately Beltrame was shot, and killed. His brother said of him, “…he gave his life for someone else, a stranger.” This brave act reminded me of another person who gave His life for others. Jesus gave His life on a cross at Calvary, in Israel. He did so to take the place of sinners, to pay the sin debt we all owe, since “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Paul the Apostle, wrote, “God demonstrates His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Lieutenant Colonel Beltrame gave his life to save the life of one person. He is a hero. Jesus Gave His life to save the souls of all mankind. He is God.
