God's people are grateful and thankful

We have been chosen to be God’s special people.  His spirit dwells in us giving us the power to withstand the schemes of the enemy.  No longer shall we act like powerless creatures as sin no longer rules over our lives.  We live to glorify his holy name and to please him.  We love because God loved us first.  We desire to serve God because he has imputed special gifts in our hearts to further his kingdom.  Today is the day we are to praise our Lord for all the wonderful things he has done and is doing in our lives. 

He will show us everything he wants us to accomplish in him through his glorious power.  The one that died for everyone has been crowned with glory and honor, and led many to be saved and share his glory, Hebrew 2:9-10.  Thank you Lord for your wonderful and marvelous ways.  We are thankful to be part of your eternal plans. 

Lord, you became one of us, so you could serve your Father, as our merciful and faithful high priest, and sacrificed yourself for the forgiveness of our sins.  And now that you have suffered and were tempted, you can help anyone else who is tempted, Hebrew 2:17-18.

Therefore, rejoice and give thanks to our Mighty King, Jesus Christ.  The victory is yours because he has made it possible.  You have power through him so start using it, your life has meaning in him so start acting like.  

Praise God today with a grateful and thankful heart.  Rejoice!

Psalm 100
A psalm. For giving grateful praise.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.
