A brave Soldier October 7, 2020

On December 4, 2007, a 19-year-old soldier, serving in Iraq saw a grenade being thrown from a house top. Manning the machine gun in the turret of his Humvee, he tried to deflect the explosive, but it fell inside the vehicle. Though he had time to jump to safety, he threw his body over the grenade in a selfless act that saved the lives of four fellow soldiers. This act of sacrifice illustrates what Jesus did for us when He took the punishment for our sin on the old rugged cross. Paul the Apostle wrote concerning Jesus’ death in our place, “… perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Those four soldiers will never forget the soldier who died for them. We should never forget Christ’s death for us.
