Thank Those Who Have Served

John 15:3 New International Version (NIV)

You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

Today we say, “Thank you!” to all the men and women who have served our nation in the military, so that we can be a free nation. Since the beginning of the United States on July 4, 1776, every generation has been called to defend freedom. Over the years there have been more than two million American men and women who have served our nation in the time of war. 

Our freedom has truly been bought with a price. This past week, I had breakfast with a good friend who owns a company and employs over 75 men and women. She shared with me about a military man who had passed away and a motorcade would pass by his place of business. He had everyone at his business stop work and stand next to the highway as the motorcade passed by. 

That is a true patriot. What a great example of showing respect and honor. This man also pays respect and honor every Monday at his business by sharing the Good News. Love Jesus and love people.

Today, I hope all of us take time to tell a veteran, “Thank you!” 

Allow the Holy Spirit to work through you as we are called to love people.

I am excited to announce our new teaching series for Vital Men in January. We will be studying the Book of John. The Gospel of John presents Jesus as the Son of God. We will go in depth in studying Jesus, and his life with the Power of the Spirit will transform our lives.

The Nazirite Vow

Judges 13:5 New International Version (NIV)

You will become pregnant and have a son whose head is never to be touched by a razor because the boy is to be a Nazirite, dedicated to God from the womb. He will take the lead in delivering Israel from the hands of the Philistines.”

Samson was designated at birth to be a Nazirite. the word Nazirite comes from the Hebrew word that means ‘a deliverer’ for Israel.

It was up to Samson’s parents to raise the boy that honored the vow which came from the Angel of the Lord. Even Samson’s mom had strict guidelines to abstain from any fruit juice or alcohol beverage that came from a vine.

The New Testament Scripture gives us a parallel to the Old Testament Nazirite Vow. It is found in Romans 12:1-2. Paul states, “Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy, and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing will.”

I am challenged in the depth of my soul to live in such a matter to live the New Testament Nazirite Vow. It will require your focus to be in Christ and not in the world. We have a choice to make, to be Vital Men consecrated to God, or live a life of our own chasing the world. Which will you choose?
