Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson
Cecil Thompson

John 14:1-3

"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

Memorial Day is a day to recall the past and to pay tribute to those who have been gone before us. It is a time for us to remember. It is also a time for us to reflect upon the future. It is also a time to pay respect to the men and women who have dedicated their lives, sometimes paying the ultimate sacrifice in order to insure our freedom.

Our kids used to ask me to tell them about the "good old days." That was always difficult for two good reasons: First—I was not good! I used to wake each morning wondering what I would get a spanking for that day. It was certain that I would deserve it and receive it—I just did not know for what. Second—I was not old, but was young. I guess I could share with them about my "bad-young days," but that was not what they asked for and I was not going to tell them!

There are many in my life that left a lasting memory. It is to them I choose to recall on this Memorial Day. I recall former pastors who stood strong in delivering the pure Word of God with unwavering diligence. I recall my Sunday School teachers who must have thought I was not hearing a word they said—but I did!

I bless my precious grandparents and parents who provided an example of solid Christian faith day after day and year after year so that almost everyone in our family have become born again Christians. I take this time to remember my dear wife who has been beside me for almost fifty-seven years.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
