In gratitude to Jesus for all He has done for us, today let’s take some time to make a list of things we are grateful to Him for.  Then, we can spend a few minutes in prayer thanking Him for all he has done.

Devotional Thoughts:

Jesus had to suffer rejection so that we could be accepted by His Father.
Jesus had to shed His sinless blood so that ours could be declared clean.
Jesus had to die for us to have eternal life.
Jesus now lives so that we won’t have to die in our sins.
