《Thanksgiving spiritual meditation 5》: “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (Psa 107:1)
Meditation one: Have you ever experienced the chaos of falling to the very bottom in your life, having no place to ask for help regardless, and trapping in the middle of nowhere? Lift your head and look up. The psalmist said: “I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Psa 121:1-2). No matter how miserable, how harsh, how dreadful, how desperate you are now, please remember that there is an invisible God who cares about you. He has become flesh for us more than two thousand years ago to save us. The birth of Jesus Christ is a sure proof of God’s love for the world.
Meditation two: Have you ever thought about this? If Jesus Christ had not been born, there would be no Christmas in this world; if Christ had not sacrificed His life to shed His blood, our sins would not be forgiven; if Christ had not experienced death, He would not have been resurrected; if Christ had not been resurrected, Christians would be the most pitiable people in the world. But thank God, because He has risen from the dead, our lives become meaningful, our lives have hope, and our lives have purposes.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, You are worthy of our adoration and praise. Because of the birth of Your only begotten son, Jesus, we can be saved by grace. Please help me and give me a keen heart and a grateful heart as I enter into the Christmas season, so that I can have the courage to become a person who preaches the gospel and shares the good news. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
