Rejoice evermore. … In every thing give thanks. – 1 Thessalonians 5:16 and 18

Thanksgiving, indeed. Right where you are.

And as you gather, remember:

“Look, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears me calling and opens the door, I will come in to share a meal at that person’s side. Anyone who proves victorious I will allow to share my throne.” – Revelation: 3:20-21 (NJB)

That’s not just the seat at the head of the table, mind you, but the throne!

*   *   *

Man may be saved if he will; for they know right well, ‘Tis not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth; but in God that sheweth Mercy; for we are not able of ourselves, so much as to think a good Thought, but all our Sufficiency is of God, who worketh in us both to will and to do of his own good Pleasure. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
