Thankfulness on Thursday

Today I am thankful…

That while I was still weak Christ died for the ungodly, me.

That God shows His love for me in that while I was still a sinner Christ died for me.

That I am justified by His blood and saved by Him from the wrath of God.

That I am reconciled to God by the death of His Son and saved by His life.

That I am a new creation; the old has gone and the new has come!

That my old self was crucified and it is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me.

That the life I now live I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.

That because of the great love with which He loved me, God, rich in mercy, made me alive together with Christ even when I was dead in my trespasses

That God has caused me to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

That though I do not now see Him I believe in Him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory

That it is by grace I have been saved through faith. It is not my own doing; it is the gift of God.

That I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ and that through Him I have obtained access by faith into this grace in which I stand and I rejoice in hope of the glory of God

That I have confidence to draw near to God with a true heart in full assurance of faith with my heart sprinkled clean because of the new and living way Jesus opened for me by the shedding of His blood

That if God be for me; who can be against me?

That He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up will graciously give me all things.

That nothing shall be able to separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus

He is risen!

What are you thankful for today?

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; 
 I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. 
I will be glad and exult in you; 
 I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
~ Psalm 9:1-2
