“In the Spirit of Thanksgiving”

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:16)

As Thanksgiving approaches, we tend to become reflective about the things we are thankful for. In my personal experience, there’s many a Thanksgiving where my family gathers around the table and shares about the things they are thankful for. To name a few, the most common things that are mentioned are having a family, friends, food, shelter, good health, secure job, and safety.

Surely, it is important to have a sense of appreciation for these things. However, this Thanksgiving, I find myself most thankful for one gift in particular.

What is that gift?

God sent His son, Jesus Christ, 2,000 years ago to bear the cross and conquer sin. This work is testified within the Scriptures, which also explains God’s heart, will, and plans for humanity. Being able to experience and be a part of His work is the greatest blessing of all.
