In a few hours, it will be Thanksgiving. Let us offer thanks to the King of Kings for His graciousness and mercy. With these turbulent times, it may seem there is little to be thankful for, but if you are in Christ, you have everything to thank Him for. As it is written, if a man gains the whole world and loses his soul, what has he profited?

For those who know Jesus Christ and trust in Him, we know He supplies every need. We may have lost a job or have loved ones fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan, but we are still heirs to the Kingdom when this world passes away.

For those who have not yet discovered the good news of Christ’s coming, I encourage you to look at the blessings in your life. Even if everything seems grim, there is hope. For starters, you have a God who loves you. He loved you enough to carry all your sins to the cross. That you’re alive means there is still time to find salvation. On top of that, here are some things for which you might be thankful:

a job, loved ones, pets, a car that works, gas money, a roof over your head, food on your table, a bed to sleep in, friends.

We all have so much to be thankful for every day, but oft times, we forget. We take every little thing for granted–expecting it will always be there. But nothing lasts forever except heaven, our souls,¬†and hell. So give thanks, not just today, but every day, for the blessings Jesus Christ has bestowed upon you.
