I'm thankful I don't get what I deserve! I'm a sinner saved by grace and there is nothing good in me. I deserve death and judgment. My righteousness is as filthy rags. BUT I'm a child of God because I accepted the sacrifice Christ made for me on the cross, repented and made Him Lord of my life. Therefore, I am made righteous THROUGH the blood of Jesus and have become a new creation, a daughter of the King.
As a daughter of the King, I am loved beyond measure. See what He says in 1 John 3:1 -
"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! ... "
I know I've used this scripture recently in other posts, but it's so great. He doesn't just love us, He lavishes love on us! I'm thankful that He loves me like that. I can trust Him to give me what is best for me since He loves me so extravagantly.
