“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8, NKJV.
Know the things you’re thankful for, but most of all, know Who you’re thankful for and Who is responsible for it all. Be thankful for Jesus today. No matter where you are, no matter what you’re experiencing, Jesus always puts every thing in perspective.
Jesus told the disciples rejoice because your name is written in heaven. Each day you can rejoice, celebrate and be thankful that you are redeemed and your debt of sin was eternally paid. Every one of them have been blotted out, never to be known in connection to you again. Because of Jesus, when God sees you, He sees you as completely righteous in Christ.
Jesus opened the door of salvation and you freely walked through it. Because he rose, you rose too and you realize the blessings have been countless since he has been in your life. How many times has God failed you? When did He not provide? When have you not seen His goodness and mercy follow you? Let your thankfulness for Jesus cause you to give him praise. If it weren’t for him, where would you be. You now have a life that overflows with God, with His promises and victory.
Prayer: Father, I can thank You for a lot things, but above all, thank You for Jesus. Thank you Jesus for my great salvation. There’s nothing I can make it through because of you! I thrive because of you. You are the source of my joy and every blessing in my life. If if weren’t for you, where would I be. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
