On a recent day trip I happened upon a quaint little craft sale. Beautiful fall arrangements, signs, and harvest decorations were on display with a line of people anxious to purchase their favorite item. I didn’t make a full inspection of everything available as, this time, I didn’t feel inclined to make a purchase. But a few things caught my eye and set me to thinking.
A cute little pig was hugging his blankey and holding a sign which said “Give Thanks”. I don’t know if he was thankful that
He welcomed me to his arms even when I was “wicked” and he died to save me from my sins. He can do the same thing for you. We don’t have the power to change ourselves. But when we respond to God's call on our lives to receive Jesus; when we ask for His forgiveness and accept His sacrificial death and resurrection as our means to becoming a child of God, Jesus makes us a new creature and He removes the power of Satan from keeping us in the kingdom of darkness. Then we have something to be truly thankful for. I give thanks unto you Father, King of the Universe.
