The age we live in is often called the information age. Information once contained in books and libraries in obscure places is now easily available through quick searches on smart devices. Yet with all that knowledge has our understanding of what is truly important increased? In scripture such an increase in knowledge is a prophetic sign of Christ’s return.
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”” (Daniel 12:4, ESV)
What is most important for us to know both in this life and as a means to enter the life after this life? The answer to that is one of the greatest reasons we have for being thankful to God.
For our soup course consider the words of 2 Peter3:b
“…through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,” (2 Peter 1:3b, ESV)
God has given believers the knowledge of Himself and this is a great reason to be thankful.
- Because only by knowing Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior will our sins be forgiven and we will enter eternity with God.
- Knowing God as our loving Father will help us to walk through this life facing all the challenges that we will encounter. He is our strength.
- Knowing His abiding presence of the Holy Spirit we can live in joy, filled with hope, and at peace.
If you know God and you know The Way then all you need for life has been granted to you by God. Rejoice and be thankful.
