“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3:16, 17)
Only those that have been redeemed by the blood and sufferings of the Lamb of God can give true thanksgiving, because only they have the right reason to do so. Whatever good may happen to a person in this life it will surely come to an end. Thanksgiving, therefore, is short lived except for those that are tied to the eternal God.
The day is coming when according to (Revelations 11:16-18) the Lord God
We are told in Psalm 106 and verse 1, “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His loving kindness is everlasting.” In this present world men use the word forever all the time but it is without meaning, and obviously without contemplating man’s inability in his present state to continue forever. We can say, I’ll love you forever but we cannot make it happen. We cannot live forever by our own power, only God is eternal and only in His hands is the power of eternity.
I thank God and give him all the praise for being willing and able to carry out all that He has promised in His word. Happy Thanksgiving!
