Joanne Lowe's Meditations : 'Remember Jesus'

“Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.  But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.”
John 19:32-34 (King James Version)
    I read an article on a website about Memorial Day.  One of the statements in the article reminded me of Jesus and His service to His Father.  “Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.” 
    Next Monday on Memorial Day as we remember and give thanks for all the brave men and women who have died in our nation’s service, let us also remember and give thanks for Jesus who died in His Father’s service and who died for every person in the world.  Thank God for the blood that Jesus shed for us.
    Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege of serving Jesus, the One who loves me so much that He died for my sins on the cross of Calvary.  I pray that every man, every woman, every boy and every girl will remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for them as we observe Memorial Day.  Amen.
