Funeral of a Soldier (4 of 5)
Series: Funeral Services
On behalf of the family, I want to take a moment to welcome you to our service today. We are here today to celebrate the life of Sgt.________. _________ was born in ______________ on August 13 in ______ and he was killed in the line of duty, serving his country and protecting our freedom on June 2, _____. Death is not the end; rather it is only the beginning of eternity. The passing of a loved one is often unexpected and always difficult. But my prayer is that the peace of God would be real in your heart and life today. Paul wrote in Philippians that ''the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.'' Jesus Himself said in the Gospel of John, ''Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.'' On behalf of the family, I would like to say a special thank you to you all for being here today. Will you pray with me please? Prayer
