being thankful over thanksgiving weekend is easy. it’s every other week that my sense of gratitude can be lost.

i would love to be able to say i never take things for granted, but am instead grateful.

but i can’t if i’m honest.

this past sunday at Colossae i taught on Romans 5:12-21 paul here is comparing the man Adam with Jesus his point is clear: they are different people and each leads us in a different direction. here is the comparison he makes between these two in this section:

Adam led to: sin and death (12, 17, 21); Condemnation (16); Disobedience (19)

Jesus led to: Justification (16); Righteousness (17, 19); Obedience (19); Grace (15, 20)

polar opposites. here is what i know to be true about gratitude in my life: when i take my focus off man (which includes self) and put it on Jesus gratitude is a part of my life additionally, when i look at where i came from (i.e. the life of Adam) to where Jesus has brought me, i’m grateful and it’s when i can keep these things at the front of my mind that i remain thankful more than just a weekend a year.
