Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. -Colossians 2:7 NLT

Thanksgiving Day will be here soon. Turkeys will be bought and preparations will be made. Family and friends will gather to celebrate. Though all the above is to be enjoyed, there is a deeper meaning.

The chorus in the song “Glorious Day” gives you the real reason for Thanksgiving. “Living, He loved me / Dying, He saved me / Buried, He carried my sins far away / Rising, He justified freely forever / One day He’s coming / Oh glorious day, oh glorious day.”

As you enjoy your turkey dinner remember to focus on the true reasons to be thankful. You are blessed, loved, and a son/daughter of the King of Kings. What a glorious day it will be when we are in the presence of our Savior.

Prayer Focus

Thank God for all your blessings.

Thank God for sending His Son so you may have eternal life.
