Who Do I Thank For This?

Have you ever had an experience where you benefited from someone’s generosity and you didn't know who to thank? 

Maybe it was a party and you enjoyed a delicious spread. You wanted to thank the cook. Maybe at some event someone paid, unexpectedly, for the whole group. Do you remember asking, “Who do I thank for this?”

Well…have you ever enjoyed anything on planet earth? Did you enjoy or benefit from anything yesterday? Is your heart still beating today? Are you still breathing air you don’t own? Have you eaten food just about every day of your life? Obviously, the list could go on. Which is kind of the point. Who do you thank for it?

And if you are a Christian, have you, undeservedly, been rescued from the domain of darkness? Have you been qualified to share in the inheritance of the saints in light? Have you been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb? Have all your sins been paid for - past, present, and future? Do you have a living hope that can’t be killed by anyone or any circumstances on earth? Can anything or anyone separate you from the love of God in Christ? Will God work all things together for good for you? Obviously the list could go on. And it should.
