A Time to Remember
1“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: 2A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; 3A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; 4A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance” (Ecclesiastes 3:1–4, NKJV)

Today is not just an ordinary day for any of us. It’s RACE DAY, a time we got out for excitement and fun, but we’re wrestling with the death of one of our racers, a friend, a husband… a father. It is a significant time for several reasons:

  1. Today marks a time of remembering.
    The smell of burnt fuel, the noise, the dirt in the air, our presence here today is in honor of the life of Jamie Campbell. Today is a day for remembering him. We are fortunate in that there are so many good memories of him:
    • Racing was a family affair with Jamie… his dad, his brother he started young.
    • He crewed for others at a Baja 1000 race and at Gateway Dirt Nationals in St Louis, MO
    • Brandon Brzozowski said he was like “a kid in a candy store” while they were in St Louis. He was all over the pits checking out the cars, the people, all that was going on.
    • He helped folks and in a way that wasn’t expecting to be paid back.
    • He loved the sport, cars and being here to race.
  2. Today also marks a time for grieving (Eccl. 3:4).
    The preacher of Ecclesiastes says that there is a “time to mourn." Losing someone we love produces genuine pain and grief. We have tears of sadness. Those who've walked this road know that grieving is a common process, but it’s different for each of us and is a road that we’ll need to travel, but it’s also time to take this pain and give it to God as we go through each stage.
    a. There’s a sense of shock, numbness, and often denial.
    Not that many days ago, Jamie was right here with us. Now he’s gone. It may feel like a shock. Death should shock us. God's original plan was for life without death, but when sin entered into the world, death came with it. So, death should shock us, and it does. Take your shock to God today.
    b. We may feel anger and resentment.
    Death also often provokes feelings of anger. We feel anger at death, anger at sin, anger at people, anger at self, anger at injury, and sometimes anger towards God. The important thing is to not stay angry. Choose to use this event as a prod to draw you closer to God and not away from Him.
    c. Perhaps we have feelings of guilt.
    In times of death, we may feel guilty. Maybe we parted with harsh words or feelings that won’t be resolved now, maybe we’re asking, “Why him and not me?” It might just be that this event calls you to remember an unconfessed sin between you and someone else here. If you have such guilt, realize that "if we confess our sins, [God] is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
    Take your guilt to God today. He loves you, will forgive you, and will cleanse you.
    d. We feel Loss, loneliness, sorrow, emptiness, pain…
    Jamie’s departure will leave a great hole. If you have not yet felt the deep sense of loss and pain, you will. You will miss him. This hole is a clear call to run to God. Ultimately, He alone can fill the holes in our hearts. Take your loss and pain to God.
  3. This is a time for examination (2 Cor. 13:5; Rom. 14:12; Heb. 9:27).
    As we remember Jamie it is a reminder of the reality of death, the certainty of death, and its inevitability. We should prepare ourselves for death, because “…it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment," (Heb. 9:27).
    Let me ask you, are you in faith? Have you trusted Christ to be your Savior?
    Are we living with eternity in view? No one has a guarantee of tomorrow. We could be here next week remembering one of you. Would we have the hope of knowing you would be in heaven? Would we have the confidence that you would do well on your final exam?
    Are you ready for your final examination? Will you see Jamie in heaven? How can you know for sure that you are saved?
    A. Admit you are a sinner and that you need God–turn away from your sin.
    B. Believe in Jesus Christ. That He lived a sinless life, died for you, rose again.
    C. Call upon Him to save you; commit your life to Him.
    D. Determine to begin doing everything He says.
    Turn to God today for His comfort and forgiveness, get yourself right so that someday, hopefully a long time from now we’ll all be together with Jamie in heaven forever.
    Let us pray.
