What a neat time we had in Communion together on Sunday. I was overwhelmed again by Jesus’ great love for us. It certainly caused my heart to be THANKFUL. That’s the right thing for this season!
Sometimes we people are talking about Communion, the word “Eucharist” comes up. Eucharist became the word the early church used for the bread and the cup. One of the neat things I’ve learned in the last year of is that the word “Eucharist” means “give thanks” or “thankful.” more here
It’s obvious that we have alot to be thankful for from Jesus…who gave his BODY and his BLOOD so that we could have a relationship with God. I trust that you will take time to remember…and be THANKFUL to Jesus for what He has done and for who He is this weekend.
And I have to leave you with a song. This song is one that the Israelites sang about our God when they were very Thankful. Its actually called a song of Thanksgiving:
A psalm of thanksgiving.
Shout with joy to the LORD, O earth!
Worship the LORD with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the LORD is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the LORD is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
(Psalm 100 NLT)
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
