Why Christians Should Celebrate Veterans Day: Ernest Albert “Andy” Andrews Jr.

Today, those of us blessed to live in America enjoy the freedoms that many other nations don’t. Those freedoms weren’t cheap. They were paid with the blood, sweat, and tears of countless men and women. These freedoms that we enjoy today, such as freedom of religion and speech, weren’t free. They had to be bought at a high price. Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he shares the somber story of a veteran who gave up his freedoms for ours in his video, Why Christians Should Celebrate Veterans Day: Ernest Albert “Andy” Andrews Jr.

Why Christians Should Celebrate Veterans Day

Ernest Albert “Andy” Andrews Jr.

Andy is one of millions of young men who gave up their prime years to fight for this country. He was drafted right out of High School and sent overseas to fight a war he didn’t start. He watched his friends get killed in front of him, as well as witnessed countless other soldiers die all around him. He did all of this for one reason: freedom.

Freedom is never free. It always costs an extremely high price; usually, it costs the life of another.

12 This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:12-13

We, Christians, should all celebrate Veterans Day and thank God for the freedoms we have today because of their sacrifice.

May God bless each and every veteran. Thank you for your service.
