The Memories That Live On
Weekly devotional by Barbara Sanders
Psalms 145:7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
This week marks the Memorial Day for the dead whom participated in our nation's wars. They died, fighting for the rights of friends and family to live the good life. So many of our young men never came back from the war, after leaving home that last time. They paid the price, sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Many Moms and Dads, wives, children, and girlfriends lost someone dear to their hearts.
But their memory will always live on in the hearts of those loved ones. Not a day will go by that someone doesn't recall their name, or that a day doesn't bring back a sweet memory of them from the past. Life dealt these people a great blow, with the death of the loved one, but it will not kill the memories.
There is another great memory that each Christian should recall. It is the greatness of our Lord Jesus Christ. He showed compassion by coming to the world to save sinners. And, he paid the ULTIMATE PRICE that we might have freedom. When we come to Christ in faith, He will ease our pain. He is the Almighty God, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending. He is here to
sustain us through our trials and tribulations, to lift our spirits in times of unrest, and to give us joy unspeakable. The memory of the loving Christ Jesus should bring a smile to your face, and praises to your lips. He is worthy of all praise!
|Heavenly Father, you gave your life, that we might have life. On this Memorial Day, as we look back and remember the loved ones that didn't make it in their war, help us realize that you have given us hope for the hereafter. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.|
