Happy Thanksgiving!

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. 
Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgivingand his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Psalm 100
As Christians, we have so unbelievably much to be thankful for. GRACE has been defined as God giving us that which we don’t deserve. Because we are dead in sin without the redemption of Christ, we DESERVE nothing from our heavenly Father. Nothing. No protection. No provision. No relationship with Him. No good gifts. Because of our sin, we deserve to be separated from Him, for now and all eternity. But, Hallelujah! He has created us to know Him and know Him intimately. He knew that we would sin and separate ourselves from Him. And so, before the dawn of time, He made a way.
He has always used sacrifice as a covering for sin, even in the days of old. But He knew that we would not be able to follow His law and our sacrifice would never be good enough Never be pure enough. Never cover us enough. And so He made a way. He sent His precious Son, who was perfectly sinless to become sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God. He provided a sacrifice that would not just cover over our sin, but REDEEM it. It is because of that Perfect Sacrifice that we can become
Children of the Most High God.
Heirs of God and Joint-Heirs with Christ.
Is there a way to say “Thank you” for this Grace-Gift from our Father? This provision from our Way-Maker? I don’t know, but I intend to spend a lifetime and an eternity trying. Oh, thank you, my Sweet Father! How I appreciate what You have done for me. You are so worthy of my praise and adoration. I choose to enter your gates with thanksgiving and your courts with praise. Everyday!
May your Thanksgiving be filled with all things good: family, friends, good food, laughter, and joy. But most of all, may we all be thankful for the grace of a Loving Father.
