Today is Memorial Day

Is your flag flying?

Why should it be flying? you ask. 

Because it's Memorial Day!



“Old Folks” understand the meaning and the why of Memorial Day but, alas, I fear that most “young folks” today think it is just another 3 day holiday and a time for fun.

But is it? Should we look at it as just another occasion for cookouts, the opening of swimming pools, the beginning of summer vacations, and goofing off?

I remember my Parents and Grandparents putting flowers and flags on graves (of military and family) and referring to this special day as “Decoration Day”, its original name. The name was changed to Memorial Day after World War I, but they still referred to it as Decoration Day.

So, what exactly IS Decoration Day / Memorial day and why do we observe it?

The opening paragraph in Wikipedia says:

“Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

So, Memorial day is a special time to remember the cost of Freedom.

This video will further explain. Be sure your sound is on.

There is a fountain filled with Blood

Today's Hymn tells about the Blood of Jesus,

which was the price He paid to redeem (save) those who trust in Him as God and Savior.

A blood (i.e. death) sacrifice is required

because without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin.

Jesus provided His own death (blood sacrifice) on the cross

as the payment for the sins of anyone who trusts in Him

and

accepts His substitute sacrifice

in place of the death penalty he or she will have to personally pay

if they do not accept His sacrificial gift of salvation.

Only Christ was sinless

Christ died on the Cross to pay the death penalty for all the sins of all humans.

Some say that Christ was sinner, just like us.

But if that is true, then His substitute death on the cross could not pay the death penalty for us

because

only a sinless One could pay the substitute death penalty for all the sins of all mankind.

Today's click through is to a brief devotional that explains why all of this is important --

not only for the 'lost' (those who have not repented from their sins and have not accepted Christ as Lord and Savior)

but also for Christians (those who have repented and have accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior but still still sin from time to time).

Today is Resurrection Sunday (Easter)

Almost 2000 years ago, The Lord God Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the required death penalty for my (and everyone’s) sins. 

Three days and nights passed while he was in the grave.



But then, HE  AROSE  from the dead !!!

He was Resurrected to new life!!! 

And because He arose, we, too, can live with Him forever
        IF
we confess and turn from our sins
        and
accept the free gift of His substitute death as payment for our sins.


Jesus explained this amazing transaction to Nicodemus in these words:

                   John 3:14-18...  kjv
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned:
but he that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. ...



What should be our response to this?

Well, Robert Shaw, the Chamber Singers, and the Atlanta Symphony orchestra express my response in this video.
