We Give Thanks- Day 36

Thank you Jesus. I find myself saying this, a lot more these days. Thank you Jesus for the sun, for the weather, for the sweet taste of chocolate as it melts on my tongue. For the warmth I feel after a hug. God is so good, and he has given us many good gifts.

Today, during our carol service in church, as we sang, it occurred to me that salvation wasn’t even compulsory. God wasn’t obliged to save us and reconcile us to himself. He didn’t have to die. Love took him to the cross. Love for us!

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.- Hebrews 12:2

Oh what great love the Father has lavished upon us. You were the joy set before Him. Not the glory, he came from glory, He was always glorious. God loves us so much, my prayer is that we open our hearts to receive His transforming love daily.

God loves you so much. The Father loves you. He delights in you. He wants you to want Him.

This wasn’t even what I planned to write, but I am just so FLOORED by the immense love of God.

What great love the Father has for us.

What manner of love is this? That we should be called SONS of God. We who were His enemies, now reconciled to Him by His blood.

Thank you Jesus. I love you forever. I love you always. YOU ARE LOVE!

  1. Until the day Jesus comes His death, burial and resurrection will always be efficacious for our sins . There’s not one flex that is bigger .

  2. Raks permit me to summarise the depth of His LOVE, with this SONG:
    Behold what manner of LOVE
    The Father has bestowed upon us
    That we should be called
    The children of God 1JOHN 3:2 .
    Thank you Jesus for the SALVATION of my SOUL and my HOUSEHOLD!!!!!!!!
