Giving Thanks!

Today marks another day in our year where we stop and remember what we are to be thankful and grateful for in our lives. Thankful for what we have had, currently have and what we to look forward to in our lives.

But I would say that as a Christian – a follower of the One, The King of Kings and my Savior – the greatest thing that I could ever be thankful for is the gift of salvation that He gives freely to all who call on Him. (Rom 10:13)

So I echo the song that Don Moen sang “Give Thanks”.

The opening lines read: “Give thanks with a grateful heart, Give thanks to the Holy One, Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son”. As a believer and servant of Christ, I cherish the opportunity to thank Him. My heart cries out with deep appreciation to give Him the praise and glory for who He is and His great love for me.

In a recent study through the book of Psalms with my awesome wife, we saw all throughout the books how God is given praise and we see the thankfulness of those who penned the words!

Psalm 66:1-4 reads “1 Shout for joy to God, all earth; 2 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! 3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. 4 All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Selah

Psalm 66:1-4

As you sit down with family and friends to eat a delicious huge meal, or if you are alone and eating warmed up food in a hotel room somewhere, remember to take a few minutes to reflect on what He has really given you – salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.

If you have not received this free gift of salvation, or if you’re not sure; I encourage you to reach out to me or any believer for a better understanding of how to receive God’s gift.

Happy Thanksgiving Y’all!
