Today we joyfully celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. When people ask us what we are truly thankful for most of us will go to our default box.
We will say that we are thankful for family, friends, a home, our jobs, etc. However, are we truly thankful on this day for the joy that resides in the disciple’s heart. The joy of the knowledge that you have eternal life.
Give thanks today for your salvation.
Give thanks that Jesus was obedient to our Heavenly Father and he submitted to God’s will to suffer and be crucified on the cross. It is because of the precious blood of Christ that was spilled that we can have all of our sins covered by Christ. You should value your salvation.
Give thanks for your sanctification process.
Give thanks that even though Jesus suffered and died, he also rose from the grave…AMEN! Because we serve a risen Savior, we have the privilege of living out a process conforming us to the image of Christ. We GET to be conformed to Christ’s image!
Thank God that He counts his children as righteous and allows them to walk the path of sanctification.
Thank God for eternal life.
