100 Years...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), something different will be discussed.

Sunday, was the 100 year anniversary of World War 1 (WW1), also known as The Great War.

Here is a link to an article and video posted by a Canadian TV station known as CTV entitled, Canadians stop to remember 100th anniversary of First World Warhttp://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/canadians-stop-to-remember-100th-anniversary-of-first-world-war-1.1945332.

Our Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, joined veterans and other people, who wanted to remember those who gave of themselves, in WW1.

He placed a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in Ottawa.  This was done to honour those who fought for Canada. 

How I praise God for our Prime Minister!

In England, in the evening, lights went out.  People lit candles.

In other countries, things were done, to honour and remember those who fought for freedom, during WW1. 

For this, I praise God.  After all, every one of us, who have a life of freedom, need to be thankful to those who gave of their lives, for our freedom.

Yes, we need to honour and be thankful to those who gave their lives.  But, we also need to be thankful to those who gave of themselves, lived through the war, and suffered emotionally and/or physically, for the rest of their lives.

While being thankful to those who provided us with freedom, and while thinking about how many gave themselves for our freedom, I thought about someone else.  Jesus.

He gave of himself, for us... for all who will believe upon Him.

Yet, there are some claim to honour our Lord, yet do not truly do so.

Just as we read, in Matthew 15:8, "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me"

God told us in this Bible verse that some people claim to honour Him.  Yet, their hearts are far from Him.

Unfortunately, even today, this is true.

There are many people who claim to be Christian, yet do not go worship God. 

They may claim to be Christian, yet do not read the Bible. 

They may claim to be Christian, yet they do not place God first and foremost in their lives.

Hopefully, you are not like this. 

Hopefully, you are a true believer in Christ.  A believer, who has received the promise of eternal life, which will be spent with God.

If so, then one day, I'll see you, in heaven.

Until next time...
