Today as Americans we celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving. What does thankfulness have to do with theology? Well, our theology will help direct our thankfulness. Our view of Who God is, what He has done for us, the salvation we’ve been given – knowing this theology helps to produce gratitude and thankfulness in us for all that God is and has done. In the Monday Meat posts we looked at Ephesians 1 and all the spiritual blessings that God has given the believer in Christ. This theology – God’s character, God’s gifts of redemption and forgiveness – should result in praise and glory to Him. A thankful heart results from a theology that recognizes God and His work.
