The Bible has much to say about “Thankfulness.” The concept of “Thankfulness” is key to understanding the character of God. God loves people and though all people are separated from Him by disobedience, He has done everything necessary to provide for our forgiveness and eternity with Him. The penalty for disobedience is death, eternal separation from Him. His all-consuming love for people and His desire to spend eternity with each of us drove Him to pay the penalty for our disobedience (sin).
He entered this world in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, the anointed One. In Jesus God revealed His character and nature. He then, a perfect sinless man took upon Himself the sins of the world past, present, and future. He carried those sins to Calvary and paid the price for them in His death and descent into Hell. He personally was innocent, and Hell could not hold Him. He rose from the dead by the power of Holy Spirit. He was humanity’s substitute and then His resurrection was the promise of our eternal glory as well. He offers to us this substitute payment for our disobedience (sin). The gift is ours for the receiving. Receive it today!
Express your “Thankfulness” for this priceless gift. Worship is an expression of “Thankfulness.” Jesus desires a personal daily relationship with each of us. This life in this fallen world is difficult if not impossible to navigate on our own. Jesus has a better plan for us. Surrender your will for all matters and submit to His will. His is always the best way forward. Again, offer your “Thankfulness.” This thankful mindset keeps you connected to Jesus. He is so disappointed when we grumble, casually despising His sovereignty. “Thankfulness” is a safeguard against continued sin. A thankful attitude is a clear window through which we perceive life. A thankful heart helps you see the Light of Jesus’ Presence shining on all things in your life. A thankful heart glorifies Jesus and fills you with joy.
1 Corinthians 10:10 And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.
Hebrews 12.28-29 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe for our God is a consuming fire.”
Colossians 2.6-7; 3.16 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
