All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, O Lord; and shall glorify Thy Name. For Thou art great, and doest wondrous things: Thou art GOD alone. Teach me Thy way, O LORD; I will walk in Thy Truth: unite my heart to fear Thy Name. I will praise Thee, O Lord my GOD, with all my heart: and I will glorify Thy Name for evermore. For great is Thy mercy toward me: and Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell. (Psalms 86:9-13)
We should be in a state of thanksgiving and gratitude at all times; from knowing that He is still on the throne, and nothing surprises Him, to believing His Word that He sets up and tears down the nations, and finally expecting His return and His Kingdom on this earth. Praise His Name for all His wondrous works. His Word is clear, that He alone is GOD, and that He will accomplish all that He has said He will do.
We walk in obedience to that Word, we worship our Lord Jesus Christ because He alone is worthy, we witness of what He has done in saving us and providing for us, and we wait for the Blessed Hope and the return of our Lord to this earth or our going Home to Him.
That walk is by faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, our worship is because of who He is, we are His witness through the power of His Holy Spirit, and we wait, not in idleness, but in service and mission, to accomplish His Will and work until He comes again.
If you don't know Him then you have plenty to fear: His judgment which is perfect, His justice which is pure and Holy, His condemnation of sIn which is righteous and correct and His promise of separation from Him to all those that refuse to surrender to Him on His terms.
He is GOD, and He has already condemned sIn, but, GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that you would come to the knowledge of the Truth. The Truth that Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. He says that He is the only Way to the Father and eternal Life and that you must be born again.
If He was not GOD in the flesh it would be lunacy, but Jesus Christ the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son is the only one who could say it. Believe His Word and receive Him by faith and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship that is abundant and everlasting. Then you will truly have something to thank Him for all the time.
