“Thanks, Lord for Your Unfailing Love!”
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love, and His wonderful deeds for mankind. Psalms 107:31
Oh, that we might realize the DEPTH and the SCOPE of God’s UNFAILING LOVE. A LOVE that transcends the love of mankind. It is a LOVE that has NO boundaries, it is a PURE LOVE that is NOT contaminated by jealousy, selfishness, envy, pride, or lust, but a LOVE that is FREE from ALL forms of wickedness and fleshly desires.
It is a LOVE that ONLY GOD has, and in NO WAY can it be duplicated. It is called an AGAPE LOVE, a LOVE which compelled God to look down on WRETCHED, SINFUL mankind and with COMPASSION in His HEART, that LOVE sent His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON to earth to suffer, bleed and die a degrading, despicable, horrendous death on an old rugged cross. The ONE who knew NO sin, became SIN as He WILLINGLY gave His life so that the despicable, depraved, sinful, mankind could experience the LOVE of God and be SAVED from spending an ETERNITY in Hell.
This is hard for us to wrap our minds around, because we cannot even imagine what kind of LOVE would cause a person to SACRIFICE their ONLY SON for people who would reject that AGAPE LOVE.
If ONLY we would or could imagine the DEPTH and SCOPE of this LOVE, we would TRULY say; “Who am I that God would SACRIFICE His ONLY SON for? Who am I that God would LOVE ME that much? Who am I that Jesus, God’s ONLY SON, would WILLINGLY GIVE His life for? Who am I? Well, you’re part of God’s Crown of Creation. And God is LOVE, and God LOVES His creation. Jesus, being God in the flesh, LOVES you as much as God does, and He is OBEDIENT to the will of His Father. This is AGAPE LOVE, and is the MAIN REASON for us to GIVE God our THANKS. I like to call that special Thursday, “GIVING THANKS DAY,” especially, because we who are God’s TRUE CHILDREN, have SO MUCH to be GIVING THANKS for.
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, chances are that that special Thursday, known as THANKSGIVING, is nothing more than sitting around with family and friends, and gorging yourself with lots and lots of food, in other words, indulging in GLUTTONY, and feeling miserable, without even the inkling of giving God the THANKSGIVING He deserves. And that could be because you have NOT experienced His UNFAILING LOVE. He is NOW giving you the opportunity to escape an eternity in HELL where you will have NO escape, and will be in torment, torture, heartache, pain and despair forever. You can ACCEPT His AGAPE LOVE by coming to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and experience His UNFAILING, AGAPE LOVE. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
