This is a re-post from a few years ago but nothing has changed. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t find a picture of my Dad, just his cap and the one (center) from a group photo of Dispatch Riders from WW2.
Nothing much to say really other than I purposefully stood
‘at ease’ for 2 minutes thinking about the peace we have. What my Dad lived through and survived for that peace, all the lives that were lost, the tragedy of war – though sometimes necessary – and the utter depravity of mankind.
The world seems pretty awful at times – and it is. There is no other explanation that makes sense except what the Bible teaches about the sinfulness of Man. Nevertheless, the Grace of God restrains evil so that it isn’t anywhere near as bad all over as it could be.
We thank God for His remedy – the sending of a Saviour. I don’t see any other solution. It’s all been tried and found wanting. And that’s the problem, sinners do not want God’s remedy. There is a day coming when sin will be dealt with once and for all. When Jesus comes to judge the world in righteousness those that have rejected The Lord Jesus Christ will go into everlasting punishment (Hell), and those that have bowed the knee to The Lord Christ will go into everlasting joy with God (Heaven).
So we can look beyond remembering the fallen in war – and we ought to remember them. But we look to the one whose sacrifice is sufficient to save to the utmost.
In the end, it’s a very simple choice, Repent or Perish. Trust in Christ or be lost. There’s no middle ground.
