This is Thanksgiving time in America; a time when we reflect upon our blessings of this past year, but everyday, anywhere, for anyone, it can be a time of thanksgiving because of this:
“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved..” Romans 10:9-10
“When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned…But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, God’s Son Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:12&15
To anyone, no matter what the sin, if you ask God’s forgiveness, He will wash you clean in heart and give you a brand new life from the inside out. He will be with you for all your days. He will touch you with His love and peace. He will give you eternal life with Him when life on earth is done.
Oh, what a time of thankfulness to know you are a child of God.
