Hi my friends! As I sit here thinking about all the trials and tribulations in my life and how my relationship with Jesus has given me peace through them! Here are just a few verses that speak about the peace we have through Jesus.  John 14:27; John16:33; Acts 10:36; Romans 2:10; 8:6; 14:17; 15:13; Ep.2:14; Phil.4:7.

John 14:27

 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. As His followers, we have the assurance of His peace!

Good morning! As I look out my window all all the beauty and thank God that I can see and hear and smell things around me but I have no assurance that I will be able to do so even in the next minute. Our soul has assurance of His fellowship and union through Christ our redeemer. Here are a few verses of Scripture I am going to share with you:

1Co.6:15,19,20; 2 Co.13:4,5; Eph.5:30; 1 John 2:5-6; 1 John 4:11-13. 1Co.1:9; 1 Jn.1:3,7.

1 John 2:5-6

King James Version (KJV)

 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

1 John 1:7

King James Version

 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

I am sitting and thinking about love, how that if added the love of all humanity together it would not be as great as the love of God. Here are some verses of Scripture about the matchless love of God.  Romans 5:5; 1 John2:5; 1John4:9; Jude 1:21; Romans 8:38-39.

38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

As I go through each day with it’s joys and it’s sorrows and fighting the battles that Satan wages against me and others in like faith, it is good to know we have assurance of Salvation.

Thanksgiving

800-thanksgiving2 Thanksgiving seems to be slipping from our society. The attitude seems to be wanting everything and thankful for nothing. We Christians some times are not thankful for all things and fall into the norm of this world. The Apostle Paul writes in in Thessalonians 5:18. “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Paul also writes that we are to always be thankful. 

Ephesians 1:16

16Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

Ephesians 5:20

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

1 Thessalonians 1:2

2We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;

Acts 27:35

35And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat.          This concludes our brief look at what the Bibles says about thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving

800-thanksgiving2 Good morning and welcome to a time of sharing more Scriptures about thanksgiving!

Ephesians 5:17-20

King James Version

17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

We should be thankful in all things and for all things because of Chist!
