All that is on my mind this thanksgiving is how much god loves us, and my thankfulness for this. For a long, long, long time, I didn't believe god loved me that much. Anybody can go to this blog and pick up some "sense" that "oh here is a person trying hard to please god" "here is a person trying real hard to get god to love them" (like more then the tiny amount I deemed god loved me) But the above song is the case, "He loves us, oh how He loves us, oh how He loves us, OH HOW HE LOVES!!!!!!!!!!!"
1 John 4:8 "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
That of course doesn't mean "go ahead and sin" you know since how god loves us so much, we should want instead of sinning to be pleasing to god. We are all scarcely saved, and our best efforts are weak and feeble at best often (ya rich people could do a slew of good, but I'm sure even the wealthy have days where they haven't "hit the bar" - where there were family members they should've phoned or friends etc. and they were to tired, etc.) Let's love one another, read our bibles, pray put god first..................
He is a good god
He deserves our love, our worship, our adoration, our time in our days
Mark 12:30 "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment."
Proverbs 13:24 "He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes."
