"Thanks Be To God!"

“Thanks Be To God!”


But thanks be to God!  For though at one time you were slaves to sin, you have obeyed with all your heart the truths found in the teaching you received.  You were set free from sin and became the slaves of righteousness.      Romans 6:17, 18


THANKSGIVING, a special time to gather with friends and family and to REFLECT on ALL the things and times we are THANKFUL for.  For the TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD, EVERYDAY should be THANKSGIVING DAY.  Because, we are CONTINUALLY being BLESSED. 


Just REFLECTING on what the LORD JESUS CHRIST has done for each TRUE BELIEVER, and ALL that He SUFFERED, in order for mankind to be SET FREE from the grips of sin and to receive ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and to be able to ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS.  This ALONE, should cause us to fall on our knees and cry out:  “THANKS BE TO GOD!” 


EVERY DAY, we SHOULD remember WHO we were, and WHERE we were headed, BEFORE we received God’s ABUNDANT MERCY and His AMAZING GRACE. And be THANKFUL, with ALL our HEARTS, for WHAT our futures hold.  We are joint-heirs with JESUS CHRIST, to ALL the GLORIES of HEAVEN.  And my dear friends, there is NOTHING that can compare to a future like that.  “THANKS BE TO GOD!”  


We can DEPEND on Him, for He will NEVER LEAVE nor FORSAKE His CHILDREN.  He BLESSES us when we are OBEDIENT to His WORD and His WILL.  His LOVE is TRUSTWORTHY, and UNFAILING.  He is AVAILABLE at any time to HEAR your HEART, and to GUIDE you down the RIGHT PATH.  He will see you through EVERY situation. 


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, and are still being held CAPTIVE to your sinful lifestyle, and an ETERNITY in HELL, is your future, God wants to SET YOU FREE from your sins and to make you RIGHTEOUS before Him, and to give you an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, as your future.  He wants you to share in the BLESSINGS of Heaven, along with others who are His TRUE CHILDREN.  In order to become a TRUE CHILD of God, you must be WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask 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 be able to PROCLAIM:  “THANKS BE TO GOD!”  for your future inheritance of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  So do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
