Thanksgiving Everyday, pt 2
Nov 24, 2019
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:12-14).
It is good that we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It is as great time for families to enjoy special a meal together, but most importantly to give thanks to the Lord for His abundant blessings. While we appreciate and enjoy this Thanksgiving season; for Christians, Thanksgiving should be every day.
As we look at the passage in Colossians chapter 1, we are reminded of where we were. Only when we see our fallen state in nature can we appreciate His saving grace. We then see where we are. As partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light we are there because we have been translated there by His power. And finally we look at where we are going. Indeed, Thanksgiving should be every day.
