II Timothy 2:8-13
It is thanksgiving! It is a time to remember and call to mind those things in which we owe to our God an infinite debt of gratefulness. A mark of a commitment to thanks is the ability to give thanks and to find reasons to give thanks when we are suffering. Today we will be reminded that whereas we do live in a good world, created by God, we also live in a fallen world invaded by sin. And yet we are profoundly satisfied with our God.
