Happy Memorial Day! Hmmm, what a curios thing to say? Is it a happy day? What is a memorial?
1 : serving to preserve remembrance : commemorative
2 : of or relating to memory
In this case, it is a day to remember those American Veterans who have lost there lives defending our country, to honor them. Most Americans see Memorial Day as a celebration of Americanism and summer fun. But is that what Memorial Day is about? No, it is not! Memorial Day is a day to reflect and remember our struggles and not forget that all you have is the result of a sacrifice by another.
Let me tell you about a perfect sacrifice. 2000 years ago the Son of God lived a perfect life, He bleed and died as a sin sacrifice in our place, He was buried, and He was raised from the dead the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Proving that He is the Son of God (Romans 1:4) and demonstrating that the wrath of God against sin is fully satisfied in Him (Romans 4:31). And now God can demonstrate His mercy by forgiving our sins, and remains righteous and just when He does, He does this toward the one who has faith in Jesus(Romans 3:25-26).
So use this Memorial Day as a day of reflection and Thanksgiving toward God and Jesus Christ for all you have and the free gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus. And remember those fallen veterans who lost there lives on your behalf.
