1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Why must believers always give thanks to God? We always give thanks to God because of His love, grace and mercy. Being that man was found guilty before a holy God and if justice had been executed mankind would be condemned to death, but thank God for His mercy which spared all believers from eternal death. God's mercy was demonstrated to man through the atoning works of His Son Jesus Christ.
Thanksgiving should always be expressed given the magnitude of God's grace, love and mercy as He continues to shower His people with His love and mercy. He wakes us each morning without the aid of an alarm clock. He blesses us with a long and joyous life. Some men/women are blessed to live an earthly life beyond the promised three score and ten years. He provides for all our needs as promised in His Word. God's merciful blessings are far too many to number.
It is God perfect will is for all men to be saved and spend eternity with Him, but because of His mercy He allows man to choose eternal life or eternal death. Which do you choose?
God's grace and mercy made it so that all who believe in His Son Jesus will be saved and spared God's judgment-mercy at work.
Lord thank You for Your grace and mercy.
