Thankful Thursday-He Lives
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'" Then they remembered his words.
Today I give thanks because He is life.
"I am the Bread of Life" John 6:35
Today I give thanks because He defeated death.
Eight days after His death He said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don't be faithless any longer. John 20:27
Today I give thanks for with the same power God raise Christ from death, He shall raise me.
"Since we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be raised to life as He was. Romans 6:5
Today I give thanks because Christ gives eternal life. "for you have given Him authority over everyone.
"He gives eternal life to each one you have given Him." John 17:2
Today I give thanks because the tomb was empty.
"Then some women from our group of his followers were at His tomb early this morning, and they came back with an amazing report. they said His body was missing, and they had seen angels who tol them Jesus is alive. Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, His body was gone, just as the women had said." Luke 24:22-24
Today I give thanks because death couldn’t hold Him down.
He has risen, He lives and because He lives I live, Thank You Jesus, Lord and Savior.
