Thankful For...

God who created all good things for our use and enjoyment and for us to use to the benefit of others.

Who gave us His greatest gift of all in His Son Jesus Christ who humbled Himself to become a man. To be born, to suffer and die, and who lives forever having been raised from the grave. Who intercedes for us and will return to take us home to be with Him in heaven.

And who also has given us His Holy Spirit, who has brought us into the eternal family of God through Baptism and who sustains us with the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith in the Holy Supper of Christ. And who will give us life on the Last Day when our bodies will be raised and we will know what eternal and full thanksgiving is.
