Memorial is defined, “to preserve the memory of something.”
Remember is “to have in mind an idea which had been in the mind before, and which occurs to the mind without effort.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a national Day of Remembrance for those who have lost their lives in service to our country. These men and women have given the ultimate gift, their life, that we might have freedom. Even the freedom to gather together today in worship is a freedom that many Christians around the world do not enjoy.
As Americans, it is good to have days like Memorial Day to remind us to be thankful and to express gratitude to those who have served and are serving our country, and to their parents, children, and spouses. We also remember the loved ones we’ve lost.
As Christians, we are called to remember certain things as well:
Psalm 78:11: “They forgot what he had done, the wonders he had shown them.” AND
Psalm 105:5: “Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,”
Psalm 106:21: “They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,”
Hosea 13:6: “When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me.”
I want to take some time to remember some of the promises of God. There are too many to go through all of them, but there are some we just need to rest on. Remember, God is the perfect promise keeper.
