Today, I am thankful for:
T - The truth found in God's Word
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Ephesians 1:3N - Never-ending Love
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
1 John 3:1
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
1 Peter 1:3
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:2
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things have I given willingly and with honest intent.
1 Chronicles 29:17a
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.
