Giving Thanks Today

Psalm 118 v. 1-4
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
Let Israel say:
“His love endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron say:
“His love endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord say:
“His love endures forever.”

Let America say:
“His love endures forever.”

We give thanks today to the “high and holy One who inhabits eternity.” The Lord is not limited by the dimension of time. He stands outside time, and rules it, speeding it up, slowing it down, stopping it, even turning it backwards. He is Lord of time.

“His love endures forever”

This means that the greatest expression of His love, Jesus Christ, who is Love, and is in fact God, is always present with us who believe. Even when all our news, all our emotions, all we see with our eyes, is in contradiction to His message of undying love.

The first Christian martyr, Steven, facing imminent murder, saw with eyes of faith the lord Jesus Christ standing beside the Father and welcoming him into glory, even forgiving his persecutors. (Amazing, all it takes for me to miss the point is a sore throat.)

The Pilgrims of Plymouth suffered greatly in their mission to carry the Gospel to a new land

Their losses were horrible. So many died that first winter that it is hard to understand their stamina, unless we remember that they were seeking an eternal city, whose builder and maker is God.

Happy Thanksgiving America,
His Love Endures Forever
