Remembrance Sunday – What are you remembering?

Every year we rightly remember those who gave their lives in the first and second World War. Any reminders of Remembrance Sunday are linked with the strapline “Lest we forget” Many have family members who gave the ultimate price of their lives to secure the freedom of this country.

Is the price of a life immeasurable? If we got asked to put a value on a life; we would be very hesitant to do just that and name a price? We display our poppies with pride “Lest we forget” those who gave their lives in conflict. The poppy petals signifies the blood shed with the green stem the new life as a result of those who gave their life.

The Bible speaks of a remembrance Sunday as well, not every year but every week. Christians gather “lest they forget” to give thanks and praise as they remember the death burial and resurrection of God’s Son the Lord Jesus. His death and subsequent resurrection in the war against Satan, evil and sin secures freedom from the consequence of ours sin, (the wrong things we do in our life) if we believe and trust in him.

If a family member explained to us that a descendant had given his life in the war to secure our freedom, how would that make us feel? It would be disrespectful of us to shrug our shoulders and say what does that matter.

But what about the fact that Jesus gave his life for you? The Bible says “while we were yet sinners Christ died for us” It seems that we live in a world and society that disregards the fact that Jesus gave his life for us.

What are you remembering this remembrance Sunday? “Lest we forget”
