Memorial day is celebrated 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.
The Soldier of all soldiers and the Champion of all champions, Jesus Christ, who vanquished even death (1 Corinthians 15:55-57), ought not to be forgotten and he ought to be honored, and the Bible teaches us not to forget God our Creator in the days of our youth (Ecclesiastes 12:1) and to not leave our first love (Jesus Christ) (Revelation 2:4), who first loved us (1 John 4:19), while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8), but to remember and return and do the first works (Revelation 2:5). Let us not forget; Let us remember and repent of our ways and return to him, says God.
1 Corinthians 15:55-57 (KJV)
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 2:4-5 (KJV)
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
