These great war heros, men and women alike, gallant brothers and sisters, did not die in vain or for a lost cause. The Old Testament records in 1 Samuel 31:1-6 the tragic deaths of Saul and Jonathan killed in battle against the Philistines, and in 2 Samuel 1:17-27 how David laments over the loss of Jonathan and Saul.
Our cries are not any different than David’s cries over the loss of Saul and his brother Jonathan. David sings so lovingly remembering them as he eulogizes their valour in battle as he cries "How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle". 2 Samuel 1:25. Let this be our cry today, Decoration Day, as we remember and honor the sacrifice and bravery America’s fallen heros gave to their country.
And let us ever remember that it doesn’t end at the grave for our fallen Christian brothers and sisters, who died in the Lord serving their country. They have fallen, yes, but they are a big part of Christ’s Church, still, like us, awaiting our Saviour’s return when they shall be resurrected in their new glorious bodies to a new heaven and a new earth with Christ reigning, never again to fall in battle.
