Here’s Something for Which to be Thankful

It’s coming! It’s soon. Thanksgiving will be upon us. Is your heart filled with thanksgiving? Or do you feel like a deflated balloon, that many things for which you’d hoped have fallen flat? No one will argue that life is hard. It is. Some time ago someone said to me, “The only good I have is because I’m a Christian.” What did they mean? They were saying that Christ is the “goodness” in their life. He is, in fact, what makes us good. Hebrews 7:26 uses the word “undefiled” to describe Christ because He is more than good. Jesus is “holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted about the heavens.”  In other words, Christ is more than a good prophet. He is the high priest of heaven who saves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. No matter the circumstance you are facing today, your good Savior is facing them with you. This day will pass. Christ’s goodness and presence with you will never pass. For that you can be thankful. 

Lord Jesus, holy, undefiled Savior, we love You and praise You, the goodness in our life, our purity and salvation. We are grateful for You and love you.
