Luke 22:7-22

One of the signs of a healthy Christ-follower is a grateful heart. A grateful heart is never based on the outward circumstances of life but rather an inward desire that chooses to give thanks in all things. It is a heart that looks at the gifts, graces, and resources with which God has blessed them. It is a life that looks at the things that didn’t seem like a blessing at the time, yet looking back sees how they have turned out for good. It is a person looking at their past sins and seeing how God has redeemed them. When our heart is grateful in spite of the circumstance around us, we give God the highest praise!

Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” I love how Eugene Peterson paraphrases this passage: “The password to come into His presence is, THANK YOU!” (MSG).

As you face your day be reminded that Christ is our new covenant and have a grateful heart!
