London’s Westminster Abbey, many great men and women are buried in the floor
of the church.  Visitors walk over their tombs without hesitation…all but
one.  There is one tomb that no one walks over.  Even the Queen at her Coronation
walked around it.  It is the tomb of Britain’s Unknown Soldier.  If an unknown
soldier deserves such respect, should we not have greater reverence for the
world’s best known soldier – the Christ whom Scripture calls the Captain of
our Salvation!
