Thanksgiving

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving here in the United States. There will always be things that we don't like but we have so very much to be thankful for. It was George Washington that had this day set aside in the early United States, a day that we as a country would give thanks to God for His blessings on us as a country and as individuals. I am afraid that it is in danger of becoming just another holiday without meaning followed by a day of shopping with even less meaning.

This weeks message(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzoElt7kW9k&feature=share)is sharing the fact that we are no longer slaves but that we are heirs of the promises of God made to His SEED. Folks, His seed is Jesus and because of the covenant made between God the Father and God the Son we are part of that promise in Christ because of His finished work on the Cross. I ask people to believe that what He did on the cross was enough and that it was finished on the cross and in the empty tomb.

I will share this one thing. This past Wednesday night I was sharing to a group of students at a university in Georgia. When I was finished a young biology student who had not been a believer up to that point came to me and said, "This stuff is great." He was referring to Christ and His finished work on the Cross and His resurrection. That is referred to as the Gospel by Paul, the death burial and resurrection of Christ. I want to agree with that young student, "This stuff is great."

God Bless you all.
