The #1 Reason for Gratitude 11.23.21
“Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is made right in God’s sight—something the law of Moses could never do. ” (Acts 13:38-39)
As we "count our blessings" this week, at the top of that list should be the truth stated above. Through faith in Christ and by God's staggering grace, we are forgiven and made right with God.
On our own, this is something we could never achieve. All the good deeds in the world could not ever balance the ledger with God. If it were not for the Lord's kindness and grace, we would be doomed to eternal destruction. Instead, we are made new, indwelt by God's Spirit, and have a spot reserved for us in Heaven. It is a staggering blessing!
It is our #1 blessing.
