I love Thankful Thursday and I so appreciate Sonya in her diligence to help us remember to be thankful!
There is so much to be thankful for, I could create a list a mile long.
1. I am so thankful for the birth of Jesus.
“…and she brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS” Matthew 1:252. I am thankful for the ministry of Jesus on this earth and the purpose of God who sent Him.
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost” Luke 19:103. I am thankful that after Jesus was crucified on that cross for our sins, that he was resurrected after 3 days, just as He predicted.
4. I am thankful that because of Jesus, there is a way for us to inherit eternal life.
“But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.” Luke 24:2-3
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:165. I am thankful for the promise of His Word, that He will return one day to take us home with Him for eternity.
“He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20
