My wife and I have had opportunity over the years to visit many of the great battlefields of Europe and other parts of the world. There we have seen the memorials to those heroes who fought and won, and the burial grounds of those who gave their lives for the cause of freedom.
Some battles are more memorable than others whether won or lost. When the fighting has been fierce and costly, the battle is vividly remembered by both winners and losers. The greatest and most significant battle ever waged was at Calvary where the Lord Jesus Christ, though sore wounded and trodden underfoot, was victorious over sin and death and hell. This was the battle of all battles and now that it is over, there is nothing more to do than to remember it. The victory was final and once for all. While there is nothing to add to the work of the cross we do remember the battle, the one who is the Victor, and the blessings that have resulted. May we never forget what was accomplished there for the glory of God and our eternal blessing.
