The following is just a taste of the meal I have prepared for you.
The Holiday of Thanks Giving. Have you noticed that the word Thanksgiving is really made up of 2 words… Thanks and Giving.
This holiday in today’s world showcases only one thing….”Its ALL about ME and the things I want” We don’t spend one minute Thanking God for the blessings we have and for sure we spend less time Giving (not money, not ourselves)…but the Gospel to those all around us.
There is an example for us in the Bible of a man who understood himself. He knew why he was born, how he was to live, what his purpose for living was, and who to rely on for all his needs.
This man according to Scripture was one of a handful of men that God Himself loved in a more personal way…a real man after Gods Heart. Who do you think it is; Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Job, Elijah, David? All are candidates but none of them meet the standard and neither do I.
So this Thanksgiving I am thankful that I try but fail to be a man after Gods own heart. I am thankful that I try to tell people, even though it generally falls on deaf ears about the Truth of God and their need to prepare for the coming judgment.
I am thankful that I try to live every day for God. More often than not I fail to do so. You see I am not a David, or a Noah or the others.
But like them, I am a Sinner, saved by God’s Grace, through Faith Alone, through Christ Alone.
What I am thankful for is God’s Mercy to me and that He sent His Son to die on that Cross for me. He left me a helper who lives inside of me so when I am weak He is Strong.
And finally I am thankful that the passion that burns within me is to share the Messiah of Israel, the Christ of Christmas with all of you and anyone else that God brings me an opportunity to speak with.
I am truly humbled by Gods ability to use cracked pots of clay for His Glory. We do our best to derail HIS purposes. But still His Will gets done in our lives as He arranges meetings in time between His seed planters and the hearts of those whom He has pre-destined to receive the seeds.
May you all Praise God from whom all Blessings flow. May you all give HIM GLORY and HONOR this Thanksgiving Holiday Season because He is in control of it all…and for that I am very thankful.
Who IS the man God sent to us to ? The man whose Heart Beats with Gods …..HE is the GOD / man JESUS….HE IS….ALMIGHTY GOD. If you know HIM, HE will walk with You ALL the Way HOME to HEAVEN.
We were raised to think the letters TGIF means “ Thank God Its Friday”.
That is the wrong interpretation of the letters.
T G I F …. Means….
THANK GOD I’M FORGIVEN !
