Support your local police and firefighters

I'd just like to take a few minutes and remind everyone of why we should support our police, since its so easy to forget.

Our police officers go out everyday, for (IMHO) peanuts, and put their lives on the line so that we can be safe and sound in our homes. Discard any sarcastic comments about whether or not the streets are safe. The fact is, without the police around, life would be a lot worse. I know police officers have to deal with a lot of sh** everyday. A LOT. EVERY DAY.

The same goes for firefighters. Firefighters and police have the strange vocation of rushing in to emergency situations, while everyone else is rushing out. Firefighters also put their lives on the line in order to save people from horrible deaths and injuries by fire.

As an interesting side note, imagine going into a burning fire and dying to save someone's life as a firefighter may do. That is an imperfect representation of what Christ did for us. Christ dies and descended into the fire (hell) in order to save us.

We should also note the service of Emergency Medical Technicians. Though people don't often think of their work as dangerous, it certainly has its evils. The possibility of accidental exposure to disease, especially in situations where every second counts and time is compressed, is ever present. EMTs also charge into what some might call war zones to ply their trade, even when they are at risk, because it is their duty.

I would certainly be remiss without mentioning the members of our Armed Forces. Politics aside, these people defend our freedoms every day. Countless number of them have died so that we can enjoy the greatest country in the world.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friend." John 14:15



Prayer:

Lord God, Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us police officers, firefighters, EMTs and Armed Forces to defend us from harm and danger. Please bless their work and defend them and uphold them while they defend us. In Jesus' Name,

AMEN.

Spoken like a chaplain. Also, EMS officers operate in dangerous places, such as freeways, dark roads and fire grounds. So it's not only disease, but also physcial danger.

I'm not a chaplain, but I am a thinker.

It is a wonderful thing that others are willing to be in danger so that I can live in safety.

Just a nit to pick, but the descent into hell is part of the victory.
