In 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!
