Thank you Greg for this awesome way to share our thankfulness with others!
* I am so thankful that God sent His Son from the perfection of heaven to this earth.
John 3:16 tells us, "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"
*I am thankful that because He loved us so much, He provided the payment for our sins so that we could be forever free from that bondage. When we are His, we are forgiven because Jesus paid the debt for us on the Cross.
Romans 5:8 tells us, "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us"
* I am thankful that we are no under the law anymore but because of His precious atoning blood, we are under grace. Generous grace that He pours out daily.
Romans 6:14 says, "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace"
* I am thankful that the grave couldn't hold my Jesus. He died on that Cross and was buried and then just as God said, He rose again on the 3rd day! Praise You, Lord for a Risen Savior!
Mark 16:6 says, "But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazarath, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him"
* I am thankful that one day, the eastern sky will bust wide open and He will appear in the clouds!!
"Behold, I am coming quickly,..." (Revelation 22:12)
"Then we who are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord." (1 Thessalonians 4:17)
I praise You, Lord, as we celebrate this awesome Easter season and the glorious resurrection of Your precious Son. Thank you for giving us a savior - that if we put our faith and trust in Him and Him only, we can have forgiveness of sins and eternal life with You. You are wonderful and You are powerful and You are worthy of all of our worship and praise. I love You with all that I am.
In His mighty name,
