Our Greatest Thanksgiving...

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:17, NKJV). 

"HINE HUBA!"

That's "Behold, He comes" in Hebrew--and that's what I'm most thankful for this week as we prepare for our annual day of Thanksgiving.

True, I am thankful for my family, for our comfortable home, for bountiful provision of food--not just at Thanksgiving, but all year long--and for the joy of friendship and fellowship and countless other blessings. But apart from the promise that Jesus will return for us--whether individually when our time here on earth is over or to gather together His Church from all tribes and tongues and nations--what would any of the rest of it mean? It would all be temporal and, therefore, pointless. Knowing that we belong to the Risen Christ and that He will never, ever forsake us regardless of what situations or circumstances we might endure should be enough to cause us to walk in an "attitude of gratitude" all year long, every moment of our lives.

These familiar words to the old hymn sum it up well:

"No threat of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand,
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the blood of Christ I stand."

If we have received the risen Christ as our Savior and KNOW that our eternity with Him is assured because of the great ransom He paid to buy our pardon, then together may we cry out in gratitude, "HINE HUBA!"

Even so, come Lord Jesus....
