It is memorial day in the year of the Lord 2010, which is a federal holiday in the United States, commemorating men and women who gave their lives while in military service. Soldiers are not forgotten on this day and they are honored. Interestingly, our God is a God who does not forget His people and His promises to those who are faithful as soldiers (in spiritual warfare) to Him. Being righteous, He does not forget the works and labor of love (ministry) shown toward His name and His glory (Hebrews 6:10) and to those who serve him, He has promised that God the Father would honor them (John 12:26). Martyrs and those who serve as soldiers for Christ are not forgotten and honored by God. Onward Christian Soldiers, for God does not forget; He celebrates memorial day in honor of those who work and labor for him in love.
Hebrews 6:10 (KJV)
10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
John 12:26 (KJV)
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
