Giving Thanks (6)
Bible Reading: John 14:6-14
Thursday, November 27, 2014
Our last question about giving thanks is: How should we give thanks? First, I think we need to remember that the only way to God is through Jesus. Verse 6 of our Bible Reading says, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.’” When we pray to God and thank Him, we should do it in Jesus’ name.
Second, our thanks should not only be spoken or signed. Our thanks should come from our hearts. If we are truly thankful, we will show our thankfulness through obeying God. If we pray and try to obey God’s Word, we show Him that we are thankful.
I hope you will take time to think about giving thanks to God. And I hope that you will be thankful to God every day of the year. — NW
“You must depend on Christ only, drawing life and strength from him. Just as you were taught the truth, continue to grow stronger in your understanding of it. And never stop giving thanks to God.” Colossians 2:7
PRAYER: Father, thank You for all the wonderful blessings You give me! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
