Thank God

Thank God

“Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God.”
Psalm 50:14 (NLT)

Why do we make it so hard? What is it about God that we think we have to earn His love? It’s not that God wants us to. He doesn’t. The fact is we can’t! However, there is something deep inside of us that wants to feel we have worth, and the only way we know to do that is to try and “earn” it. But what if you could see it another way? What if you started to believe that you have intrinsic worth? That you were created by a God that saw you as something with great value? That He took great pleasure in creating you? What if you started to believe that God loves you because you are you! If you could start to grasp that, then you would begin to understand today’s verse. God wants your worship of thanksgiving. He doesn’t want sacrifices to appease Him, or to bring you into a right relationship with Him. He wants you to realize that as a Christian you are already His child and that you have all the love and acceptance by Him that you would ever need. All He desires is “thanks”. A heartfelt thank you, this is the offering He desires. Today, let the love of Christ fill your heart and bring a deep sense of appreciation and gratitude, a true sacrifice of thankfulness, to Him.

Father, I come and bow before You. I am humbled by Your love for me. I could never earn it. Today I come to say Thank-You. Thank you for all Your love.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
