Thought of the Day November 17, 2017 Thanks for Jesus and salvation

By 9:56 AM


What else should we give thanks to God for?
For the gift of Jesus and the gift of salvation: the gift of human life is gift enough, but to be given a share in the life of God is beyond understanding. But what is more beyond our grasp of understanding is to be given the gift of salvation after we had turned away through sin. Not only seven times but seventy times seven, in other words without limitation God has gifted us with the grace of salvation.

"You were dead because of your sins and offenses, as you gave allegiance to the present age and to the prince of the air, that spirit who is even now at work among the rebellious. All of us were once of their company; we lived at the level of the flesh, following every whim and fancy, and so by nature every whim and fancy, and so by nature deserved God's wrath like the rest. But God is rich in mercy; because of his great love for us he brought us to life with Christ when we were dead in sin. By this favor your were saved....It is owing to his favor that salvation is yours through faith. This is not your own doing, it is God's gift." Eph 2:1-9

For you, Jesus, and your gift of unconditional love through your death and resurrection, granting us life with you now and forever, thanks.
