Summary: Just as Memorial Day reminds us of the advantages the deaths of others in armed struggle have brought us, we must take advantage of Christ’s death and the benefits it brings us.
Memorial Day reminds us fallen heroes still speak.
Established in 1868 as a day to honor the fallen soldiers of the just concluded Civil War, Memorial Day has grown into a recognition of all our nation’s war dead and the high price of our freedoms.
We must make Christ’s death for us count.
The message of the cross reminds us that Jesus’ death was the high price paid for our lives that can change our lives forever.
