Thanksgiving: More Than a Holiday
Nov 27 2013

Thanksgiving: More Than a Holiday

Thanksgiving is the holiday that so often gets overlooked in our rush to move right on to Christmas, which is unfortunate, since gratitude should be more than a mere ‘thank you’, but a place in which we live as Christians.  More than anyone else, as Christians, we should allow gratitude to shape who we are and how we live, for we have experienced the greatest act of benevolence the World has ever known, the gift of God’s only begotten son.  We should marvel that Jesus would give his life, so that we can live ours free from the death sentence that each of us faced without the Cross.  Jesus paid the debt that is impossible for us to pay. 

 Our response should be to live a life that reflects his love and mercy to others, a life of ‘thanksgiving’. Living in that place of gratitude, more than any other single thing, effects the way we love others.  Unlimited forgiveness ought to be demonstrated with mercy toward others because it is the reflection of a right relationship with the Father. To state it another way, God’s forgiveness of our sins should motivate us to forgive those who offend us.  Jesus shared a parable in Matthew 18, that is a reminder that God expects us to live that way, and never losing sight of how much we have to be thankful for makes that possible.

 We should marvel that God wants us to share in his inheritance by sharing his grace, love and mercy with others, so that they may experience the love of our kind and benevolent king.  Every day should be one of Thanksgiving for us, when we live in that space, we can truly live a life that honors God, and allows his love and compassion to flow through us to others.

 May Psalm 100 be our guide...


Shout praises to the Lord,
everyone on this earth.

Be joyful and sing
as you come in
to worship the Lord!

You know the Lord is God!
He created us,
and we belong to him;
we are his people,
the sheep in his pasture.

Be thankful and praise the Lord
as you enter his temple.

 

The Lord is good!
His love and faithfulness
will last forever.
