Thankfulness Challenge – Day 2

After thanking God for salvation from sins through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross, my mind is filled with numerous life blessings.

Salvation was possible because God the Father, sent God the Son (Jesus) to die.  God was willing to pay the ultimate price for me.  God chose to do this despite the fact that He knew I would sin. Often.

My favorite character trait of God is His faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22 says, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” (ESV)  God knows failings. Yet He loves me enough to wait for me, to woo me with through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.  To send the appropriate discipline to help correct my flaws (Hebrews 12:11).  To send the needed encouragement to pick me up and set me on the correct path (Colossians 1:9).

I am thankful that God is faithful.
