KNOWN ONLY TO GOD

Week of November 9, 2018

In November of 1921, after the end of World War I, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was built in Arlington Cemetery in Virginia.  It contains the remains of unidentified American soldiers from World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.  It represents the missing and unknown service members who died so our country could remain free.  This tomb has been guarded continuously, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, since July 1937 by trained tomb guards.

The tomb inscription reads:

Here Rest

In Honored Glory

An American Soldier

Known But To God

This Sunday, let us not forget every soldier who served for our country’s continued freedom.

Also, remember that God knows all about you.  In fact, in Luke 12:7 Jesus said: “the very hairs of our head are all numbered.”  Since God knows the very number of hairs on our heads, we must indeed be very special to Him.  If you ever come to the place that you feel everyone has forgotten about you, please remember this, you may be known only to God, but if God knows you, and He does, that is enough.  God’s love for you is an eternal love.

 

God Bless, Pastor Rick
