Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118: 21-24 NRSV

We are reminded to thank God for these things:

God has answered our prayers.

God has given us salvation.

Jesus not only died for our sins but lives again through the glorious resurrection. We therefore have hope and assurance of our own resurrection - life after death!

All of these things are God's doing, not ours.

We see these things and are amazed: no one but God could do them!

God has made this day.

We should rejoice and be glad in it!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Amen.

Name one thing you forgot to give thanks for yesterday.
