“A Day To Remember”

2 Timothy 2:7-8

2 Timothy 2:7-8 “7Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

8Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel…”


As you well know, this weekend we celebrate Memorial Day—the day that we remember those who have gone on before us. Today we honor those who have died in battle to ensure the freedom that we celebrate as Americans. Today we also remember our late fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and friends. We remember the fond memories that we have of those loved ones. Many will have family reunions this weekend. Many will go to cemeteries and decorate burial places with brilliantly colored flowers. And many will spend the day in quiet remembrance of the frailty of life.

Today I want to encourage us to also remember our Savior Jesus Christ. As we remember those that have gone on before us, we remember that He has gone to prepare a place for us. There are four very important things that the Bible tells us about Christ we can remember this Memorial Day.

On this day to remember, first we can…

I. Remember Christ’s Provision (Matt. 16:8-10

Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked, "You

of little faith, why are you talking among

yourselves about having no bread? 9Do you

still not understand? Don’t you remember the

five loaves for the five thousand, and how

many basketfuls you gathered? 10Or the seven

loaves for the four thousand, and how many

basketfuls you gathered?”).

A. Here we see a picture of the disciples of

Christ just not “getting it.” In this

passage Jesus is warning them to be

careful of the Pharisees and the

Sadducees—because their teaching was

contrary to the Word of God. But the

illustration Jesus used made them realize

that they didn’t bring any bread, and the

disciples began to worry.

B. Then Jesus reminded them of how He

provided for them, as He asked, “Don’t

you remember the five loaves for the five

thousand and how many basketfuls you

gathered? Or the seven loaves for the

four thousand, and how many basketfuls

you gathered?”

C. Here Jesus is reminding them that He will

supply their needs. He is sufficient

enough to take care of them, just as He

had done in the past.

D. I think than many of us need to be

reminded of the provision of God from

time to time. No matter what the need

is, He’s able to handle it. In Paul’s

letter to the Philippians, he

writes, “And my God will meet all your

needs according to his glorious riches in

Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). It

wasn’t just a promise to the church in

Philippi, it is a promise to us today.

E. ILL (From Morris Mott, SermonCentral)—

There was a single mother who had heard a

Biblical financial teacher say, “Quit

looking at your job as the source of your

income. Look at your job as only one

avenue, one channel the Source, El

Shaddai, uses to bring finances into your

life. Begin to teach your children to

look to their heavenly Father as their

Source, not the parents.” Her little

daughter, one day told her that she

wanted a bike, like all the other

children. Her mother, at first was about

to reply, “Honey, momma does not have

extra money,” because this was her

typical response. However, she remembered

what the teacher said in the seminar, so

she told her daughter, "Let’s ask the

Lord for a bike". They prayed together

and thanked God for hearing their prayer.

A few days later, the little received a

check in the mail, payable to her

personally. On the way to town to cash

the check, they noticed a man placing a

bicycle out by the side of the road. The

mother stopped the car and asked the man

what he was going to do with that bike.

The man replied that his daughter had

quickly outgrown the use of it and he was

going to sell it. The little asked the

man how much he wanted and he

replied, “For you, $25.00.” which was

exactly the amount of the CHECK the

received in the mail!” The little grew

up not remembering a mother who worked

hard to buy a bike, but thankful for a

mother who taught her about her Heavenly

Father, who cared about an eight years



Not only can we remember Christ’s provision, but we can also…

II. Remember Christ’s Love (Ephesians 2:4-7

4But because of his great love for us, God,

who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with

Christ even when we were dead in
