Thank God for the Gift of Christ!

Thank God for Christ who is the greatest gift of all time. If it were not for Christ, my mother and all her children would not be alive today. Her story is one of the many stories that make my heart be filled with thanksgiving to God. At some point in her life, my mother suffered from a heart condition that caused her to faint all the time. She was trained as a teacher but she simply could not function in that capacity. Due to her condition, she could not do anything with herself. She was written off by the doctors and one day she eventually gave up the ghost. Continue reading “Thank God for the Gift of Christ!”

Give Thanks to God In The Highest

Thanksgiving is the remedy for sadness, discontentment, complaints and for when things are bad. It shifts your focus from the trouble at hand and places it on the solution provider. Instead of being focused on the problems at hand, King David never ceased from giving thanks to God who delivered him, forgave his sins and gave him victory over his enemies. It is good for you to give thanks to God for all he has done for you also.

Give thanks to God in the highest who controls the affairs of man on earth. He sees all things and he knows all things. He created all things and he is above all beings. Give thanks to God who sees to it that there are seasons and times on earth. He changes things on earth in the spiritual realm even when it seems like things are not moving forward. Give thanks to God in the highest who sends his angels to fight your battles for you even when life seems tough. Continue reading “Give Thanks to God In The Highest”

Thank God for Jesus!

Thank God for Jesus! The greatest gift to humanity. If it were not for him, in what state would the world be today? If it were not for Jesus there is no hope of eternal life. If it were not for Jesus, forgiveness would have been inevitable (Ephesians 1:7). Through Jesus, we have access to the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16). Through Jesus, we are reconciled to our heavenly father (Romans 5:10). Thank God for Jesus through whom the lonely find a home, the sick are healed and people are delivered. Thank God for Jesus who brought back the lost sheep to the good shepherd.

I recently watched John Lewis’ promotional video with Sir Elton John and in it was the slogan some gifts are more than just a gift. Jesus is more than just a gift. He is the perfect gift the father could have given humanity. Through his death, we gain life. Through his bruises, we gain health. Through his humiliation, we are truly humbled. Through his pain we are hailed. Jesus is the gift that is more than just a gift. Continue reading “Thank God for Jesus!”
