The Ultimate Sacrifice

Corporal Jason Lee Dunham (1981 -2004)
In 2004, during a patrol near the Syrian border, Corporal Jason Dunham of the 3rd Battalion 7th Marines, United States Marine Corps, found himself fighting an insurgent hand-to-hand on a dusty road. When two other Marines ran over to help, the Iraqi dropped a hand grenade. Instead of rolling away, Dunham covered the grenade with his helmet, shielding his men.

Though peppered with shrapnel, the other Marines walked away alive. A grenade fragment penetrated Dunham’s brain, sending him into a coma. He died eight days later and was awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in the War on Terror, and the first Marine to receive the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War.

In the combat you face every day, Jesus will never abandon you. How will you react to the battles which you will encounter as you follow Christ? Will you run or will you stand and fight?

Joshua 4, 1 Samuel 17, Psalm 18, Hebrews 11
