March 18: Supreme Sacrifice Day

On Supreme Sacrifice Day we take the time to honor those who have sacrificed themselves for us. Although people make many types of sacrifices, the term “supreme sacrifice” usually refers to dying for someone. Today celebrates all the men and women who have died protecting others:

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:12 & 13

For Christians, today is also a special day for remembering Christ, our Passover lamb:

 

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:6-8
