Relate To Your Nation

 

 

Nathan Hale graduated from Yale with honors at a young age.  He became a lieutenant in the 7th Connecticut Regiment during the Revolutionary War.  When the British were besieging New York General Washington needed to know when they would attack & where.  He needed some spies.  Only Hale volunteered.  He went behind enemy lines posing as a schoolteacher.  He was eventually caught in a tavern with the British plans & was condemned to death by hanging.  The night before his death he asked for a Bible & a clergyman.  The British General Howe denied him these requests. On the morning of September 22, 1776 Hale was marched along Post Road in Manhattan and hanged.  His last words were, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”  He was 21 years old.

We must be willing to give our lives for our nation, our neighbors, our church and our God.  As we die to selfishness we become free to love with his love.

This Memorial Day weekend we remember those who have died for our country.  Sunday I’m preaching on “Relate to the Nation” from Romans 13:1-10 where Paul teaches us to submit to our national leaders and to love others.

I thank God for our nation and for those who’ve put themselves in harm’s way for our nation.  I thank God for my church and my Lord and for those who’ve risked their lives for our faith.  May we consider ourselves crucified with Christ so that Christ may live and love through us (Galatians 2:20!

With love in Christ,
Jim Meek
