Memorial Day Scriptures: Bible Verses For Remembering Fallen Soldiers

Charisse Van Horn

Memorial Day Scriptures and Bible verses are used by many as a way to show their respect for fallen soldiers. There are several patriotic holidays observed in the United States. These include Memorial Day, Veterans' Day and the Fourth of July or Independence Day. On the Fourth of July the nation celebrates its birth. Memorial Day and Veterans' Day are times to celebrate, honor and show reverence for those who've served in the military. However, Memorial Day honors those veterans who sacrificed their lives for the nation, while Veterans' Day recognizes all who served in the military. For Christians, Memorial Day is in line with Biblical teachings of making the ultimate sacrifice for others as this is the basis of Christian theology and the expression of the Bible verse found in John 15:3 that states, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (KJV). Memorial Day is a time to honor those fallen soldiers who laid down their lives for the safety, freedom and well-being of every American citizen. Whether for personal Bible study, devotions or needing Scriptures for your own Memorial Day traditions, the following Bible verses express the sentiment behind Memorial Day.

"1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace." (KJV)
