Day #18 of my Big Thanksgiving Challenge. Excerpted from my 100 Days of Thanksgiving Devotional-Journal which you can order when you CLICK HERE.
Living for the Lord
One of my favorite verses in the Bible, and one that for me sums up the way God created us all to live, which you will find below, is what I think of as the ultimate way to have a heart and life filled with Thanksgiving to God. When we can honestly say we are living and breathing to love and glorify God, when we are sincerely totally devoted to Him, when Jesus truly is our first love and there is nothing we desire more than the Lord and living for Him, when we yearn to live to love, honor, praise, adore, worship, serve, obey, and glorify Him more than anything else, when we want to love and serve God not to love and serve self, I believe we are expressing to God our Thanksgiving! Where do you stand with this? Are you living for the Lord?
“And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.” 2 Corinthians 5:15 KJV
