We are to be thankful because God is good; meaning we are not good. While we were still sinners Christ died for us. Then why is it so hard to give God thanks! Because we are focused on earthly things instead go the things of God. Is your soul tired of man-made, churchy and religious things? Has your soul fainted? Are you at your wits-end and ready to cry out to the Lord? Give glory to Him and let Him deliver you from all your inequities.
Are you running the race, but forgot why you do it? One thing we can't forget it that we are His children. By professing faith in Him we automatically became His children. Being His children, we undergo His discipline. Any father disciplines his children. If you don't get disciplined by by God, you have to check your relationship with Him, as He disciplines those He loves.
Baptism is the first outward sign of obedience toward Christ. The Lord's Supper is the sign of our continuous commitment toward our Lord Jesus Christ. And we are to be obedient until His glorious return. When we participate in communion we look for the spiritual nourishment this ordnance brings to our soul. Communion affirms our unity as Christ's Church.
What is what we do when we trust? We place everything in the hands of someone else. All of our fears, wants and needs, failures and victories. And God is demanding from us to give it all to Him and trust Him to make all decisions for us. This will stretch us to do things we could never imagine. That is why we HAVE to hand Him the key to the lock of our heart and let Him reign in our lives, as only this will set us free!
