Jack Dreger’s memorial service last Sunday began with military honors, in recognition of Jack’s time in the Army. Much of the body of the service honored Jack’s extraordinary devotion to his Lord, through this congregation and through the Gideons. There’s a saying: “Once a soldier, always a soldier.” It was clear, listening to the lovely testimonies and knowing Jack, that while he may have set aside the uniform of the U.S. Army, he never set aside the uniform of God’s Army. He went to glory, still in action, still inspiring those around him.

“As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love. If you keep My commands, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are My friends if you do what I command. ”

John 15:9-14
