Why does this video make us emotional? It’s one word: sacrifice.
We understand the sacrifice that the soldiers – and their families – make every day. And when those sacrifices are rewarded with a surprise homecoming, it brings us to tears. Even outside looking in, sacrifice moves us in powerful ways.
This is one reason the gospel is so powerful – it is the story of Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf.
“Now that’ll preach”, as we say down South.
