During this national holiday of Thanksgiving, let us list the reasons to have THANKFULNESS.
I’m Thankful for TEACHERS of the Gospel.
Eph 4:11-12 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
I’m grateful for HOPE in Christ.

I’m grateful for Adoption.
Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (cf., Gal 4:5)
I’m grateful for the New Testament that brings belief, faith, and understanding.
John 20:30-31 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. (Eph 3:3-4; Ron 10:17)

UNSPEAKABLE gift. 2Co 9:15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
The Love of God. John 3:16; Rom 5:8-10 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
