Grace is the oxygen we Christians need to breathe.
But it was the word "Thanks" that has gripped my heart and won't let go.
In The Scriptures, it tells us, "Before".
"BEFORE" - He poured the wine.
Each time, He gave Thanks to our ABBA.
Our Precious Savior, our Christ, our Jesus, our Babe in the manager - He gave THANKS.
He gave THANKS knowing He was giving the symbols which represented what was coming.
He gave THANKS - knowing He. He. Would be the one who would be separated from His ABBA. our ABBA.
And why? LOVE.
Our Savior's focus was always on Heaven. He KNEW what was to come. He KNEW as He wrestled in the Garden, alone with His ABBA. He KNEW all that was ahead.
He did it with thankfulness.
After The Last Supper, "They sang a hymn and went directly to Mount Olives." (Matthew 26:30).
A hymn. Extending a time of praise and worship to ABBA.
"and went directly to Mount Olives."
The place where we see His Gift of Grace,
