The Lord Our Memorial

"Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations" (Psalm 135:13).

It is a good thing on Memorial Day to remember and thank God for all those who have given their lives in defense of our nation and its freedoms and great principles. It is also good to remember the great political statesmen who were the founders of our country and the framers of its wonderful Constitution--men like Washington, Madison and others who believed in God and the Bible as they labored and planned and prayed.

And the same would apply to the great scientists who founded and developed our various sciences and who also believed in God, the Bible, and creation, seeking in their research simply to "think God's thoughts after Him." These included such brilliant, yet devout men as Boyle, Maxwell, Faraday, Pasteur, Fleming, Morse, and many, many others.

Even more important it would be to remember the wonderful Christians who have defended and expounded our Biblical faith so effectively--Spurgeon, Moody, and all those godly men and women who were instrumental in leading us to saving faith in Christ, especially our parents and other godly family members. And then the "heroes of the faith" of former ages, as listed so powerfully in Hebrews 11, must never be forgotten.

"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside . . . the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith . . ." (Hebrews 12:1-2).

In Him we have a memorial whose name shall endure forever; as our text above says, "thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations." HMM
