Acts 17:6 “And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also”
The Battle of Britain played a decisive role in World War II. Lasting from July 1940 until October 31st, 1940, it was the German Air Force’s attempt to gain air superiority over the United Kingdom to facilitate a German seaborne invasion or to force the British into a negotiated peace settlement. The British Royal Air Force rose to the occasion and sufficiently repelled the German Luftwaffe.
British Prime Minister Winston Churchill recognized the oversized role that the Royal Air Force played in the German’s first defeat of World War II. He prepared the following emotional line to use in a speech to the House of Commons: “never in the history of mankind has so much been owed by so many to so few.” While rehearsing in front of Major General Hastings Ismay enroute to the speech, Ismay wisely remarked “What about Jesus and his disciples?” Churchill, recognizing the truth provided by his General, changed the pivotal line of his speech to: “Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.” After all, nothing in human history could rise to the impact provided by Jesus and his disciples.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD LIVE OUR LIVES IN A WAY THAT RECOGNIZES OUR INFINITE DEBT TO CHRIST. Indeed, so many of us owe so much to our Lord and Savior. In reality, we owe it all to Him!
