10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 5: Thankful for God’s Peace

Colossians 3 15

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:15

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

When you have a personal relationship with Jesus, His peace pours into your heart. When you trust in the Lord with all your heart you can live at peace no matter what is happening around you. The closer you get to God the more start to see how God’s peace changes your heart. What may have once been angry and hurtful doesn’t have to be that way anymore. It’s up to you to decide if you are going to let God in and change your once hardened heart. Be thankful for the peace God freely gives through Jesus Christ to all believers.

Strengthened in the Faith

Colossians 2 6-7

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 2:6-7

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

 

As believers in Christ we must strive for spiritual maturity. We cannot grow without first being tested. If we are rooted in Christ, when trials come our faith will be made stronger when we trust in the Lord and continue to be thankful for His goodness and mercy in all situations.

Bearing Fruit

John 15 8

 

Verse of the Day:  John 15:8

This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

 

Bearing much fruit comes with spiritual maturity. When you devote yourself to God and His will, the more this fruit is evident in your life. And when you aren’t connected to the life giving vine, you stop bearing fruit. Stay connected to God with daily prayer, reading His Word and by being thankful.
