Thank God for the Covenant of Grace

Thanksgiving 4.27 | KJV

For the covenant of grace made with me in Jesus Christ and all the exceeding great and precious privileges of that covenant, and for the seals of it.

I thank thee that in Jesus Christ thou hast made an everlasting covenant with me, even the sure mercies of David; Isaiah 55:3(KJV) and that though the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, yet this covenant of thy peace shall never be removed. Isaiah 54:10(KJV)

That thou hast given unto me exceeding great and precious promises, that by these I might be a partaker of a divine nature; 2 Peter 1:4(KJV) and that Jesus Christ is the Mediator of this better covenant, which is established upon better promises. Hebrews 8:6(KJV)

That though thou chasten my transgression with the rod and my iniquity with stripes, yet thy loving-kindness thou wilt not utterly take away nor cause thy faithfulness to fail; thy covenant thou wilt not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of thy lips. Psalm 89:32-34(KJV)

That being willing more abundantly to show to the heirs of promise the immutability of thy counsel, thou hast confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, I might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold on the hope set before me. Hebrews 6:17-18(KJV)

That baptism is appointed to be a seal of the righteousness which is by faith, as circumcision was; Romans 4:11(KJV) that it assures me of the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Ghost; and that this promise is to God’s people and their children. Acts 2:38-39(KJV) And that the cup in the Lord’s Supper is the blood of the New Testament, which was shed for many, for the remission of sins. Matthew 26:28(KJV)

Thank God for the Sending of the Holy Spirit

Thanksgiving 4.26 | KJV

For the sending of the Holy Spirit to supply the want of Christ’s bodily presence, to carry on his undertaking, and to prepare things for his second coming.

I bless thee that when our Lord Jesus went away, he sent us another Comforter to abide with us for ever, even the Spirit of truth, John 14:16-17(KJV) who shall glorify the Son, for he shall take of his and shall show it unto us. John 16:14(KJV)

That being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, Acts 2:33(KJV) he poured it forth as rivers of living water. John 7:38(KJV)

Blessed be God for the signs and wonders and divers miracles and gifts of the Holy Ghost, with which God bore witness to the great salvation. Hebrews 2:3-4(KJV)

And blessed be God for the promise that as earthly parents, though evil, know how to give good gifts to their children, so my heavenly Father will give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him, Luke 11:13(KJV) that Holy Spirit of promise which is the earnest of my inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.Ephesians 1:13-14(ESV)

Thank God for the Assurance you have of Christ’s Second Coming

Thanksgiving 4.25 | KJV

For the assurance I have of his second coming to judge the world.

I bless thee that thou hast appointed a day in which thou wilt judge the world in righteousness, by that man whom thou hast ordained, whereof thou hast given assurance unto all men, in that thou hast raised him from the dead. Acts 17:31(KJV)

That in that day the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God and that obey not the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ: 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8(KJV) And he shall come to be glorified in his saints and admired in all them that believe; 2 Thessalonians 1:10(KJV) for them that sleep in Jesus, he will bring with him. 1 Thessalonians 4:14(KJV)

That he shall then send forth his angels to gather out of his kingdom all things that offend and them which do iniquity, Matthew 13:41(KJV) and to gather together his elect from the four winds; Matthew 24:31(KJV) and then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Matthew 13:43(KJV)

And I then, according to thy promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness: Lord, grant that, seeing I look for such things, I may give diligence to be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless; 2 Peter 3:13-14(KJV) and then come Lord Jesus, come quickly! Revelation 22:20(KJV)

Thank God for the Dominion and Sovereignty to which the Redeemer has been Exalted

Thanksgiving 4.24 | KJV

For the dominion and sovereignty to which the Redeemer is exalted.

I thank thee that because the Lord Jesus humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross, therefore God hath highly exalted him and given him a name above every name, that at the name of JESUS every knee shall bow and every tongue confess (as I do at this time) that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:8-11(KJV)

That all power is given unto him both in heaven and in earth; Matthew 28:18(KJV) that thou hast set him over the works of thy hands and hast put all things in subjection under his feet, and so hast crowned him with glory and honour. Hebrews 2:7-9(KJV)

That he is King of kings and Lord of lords; Revelation 19:16(KJV) that the Ancient of days hath given him dominion and glory and a kingdom, an everlasting dominion and a kingdom which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:13-14(KJV)

That the government is upon his shoulders, and that his name is called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace; and of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end. Isaiah 9:6-7(KJV)

That thou hast set him as a King upon thy holy hill of Zion; Psalm 2:6(KJV) and that he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever, Luke 1:33(KJV) shall reign till he has put down all opposing rule, principality, and power, 1 Corinthians 15:24-25(KJV) till all his enemies are made his footstool; Hebrews 10:13(KJV) and then he shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father, 1 Corinthians 15:24(KJV) that God may be all in all. 1 Corinthians 15:28(KJV)

Thank God for Christ’s Intercession

Thanksgiving 4.23 | KJV

For the intercession which he ever lives to make in the virtue of his satisfaction.

I thank thee that having borne the sins of many, Christ makes intercession for transgressors, Isaiah 53:12(KJV) and prays, not for those only that were given him when he was upon earth, but for all that shall believe on him through their word; that they all may be one. John 17:20-21(KJV)

That I have an Advocate with the Father, even Jesus Christ the righteous, 1 John 2:1(KJV) who is therefore able to save to the uttermost all those that come to God as a Father, by him as a Mediator, seeing he ever lives making intercession. Hebrews 7:25(KJV)

That I have a High Priest taken from among men and ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifice for sin, who can have compassion on the ignorant and on them who are out of the way; Hebrews 5:1-2(KJV) and that he is become the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him. Hebrews 5:9(KJV)

Thank God for Christ’s Ascension into Heaven

Thanksgiving 4.22 | KJV

For his ascension into heaven, and his sitting at God’s right hand there.

We bless thee that our Lord Jesus has ascended to his Father and our Father, to his God and our God; John 20:17(KJV) is ascended up on high, having led captivity captive, and hath received gifts from men, yea, even for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them. Psalm 68:18(KJV)

That as the Forerunner he is for us entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us, Hebrews 9:24(KJV) a Lamb, as it had been slain, standing in the midst of the throne. Revelation 5:6(KJV)

That he is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, Hebrews 8:1(KJV) angels and authorities and powers being made subject to him. 1 Peter 3:22(KJV)

That he is gone before, to prepare a place for us in his Father’s house, where there are many mansions; John 14:2-3(KJV) and though whither he is gone we cannot follow him now, yet we hope to follow him hereafter, John 13:36(KJV) when he shall come again to receive us to himself, that where he is, there we may be also. John 14:3(KJV)

Thank God for Christ’s Resurrection

Thanksgiving 4.21 | KJV

For his resurrection from the dead on the third day.

I thank thee that as he was delivered for my offences, so he arose again for my justification, Romans 4:25(KJV) and was declared to be the Son of God with power, by the resurrection from the dead. Romans 1:4(KJV)

That though he was dead, yet he is alive and lives for evermore, and hath the keys of hell and death; Revelation 1:18(KJV) and being raised from the dead, he dies no more; death hath no more dominion over him. Romans 6:9(KJV)

That now is Christ risen from the dead and is become the first-fruits of them that slept; 1 Corinthians 15:20(KJV) that as in Adam all died, so in Christ all might be made alive, and every one in his own order. 1 Corinthians 5:22-23(KJV)

That God suffered not his Holy One to see corruption, Acts 2:27(KJV) but loosed the pains of death, because it was impossible he should be holden of them, Acts 2:24(KJV) and so declared to all the house of Israel, that the same Jesus whom they crucified is both Lord and Christ. Acts 2:36(KJV)

And that for this end Christ both died and rose and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living, Romans 14:9(KJV) and that whether I wake or sleep, I might live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:10(KJV)

Thank God for the Cross of Christ and All Its Benefits (continued)

Thanksgiving 4.20 | KJV

That appearing to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself, Hebrews 9:26(KJV) Christ did by the eternal Spirit offer himself without spot unto God, Hebrews 9:14(KJV) and by his own blood entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for me. Hebrews 9:12(KJV)

That he hath spoiled principalities and powers, and made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in his cross, and hath blotted out the hand-writing of ordinances which was against me, which was contrary to me, taking it out of the way, by nailing it to his cross. Colossians 2:14-15(KJV)

That he is my peace, who, having broken down the middle wall of partition between Jew and Gentile, hath made himself of twain one new man, hath reconciled both unto God in one body, by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby. Ephesians 2:14-16(KJV)

That he hath loved me, and washed me from my sins in his own blood, and hath made me unto my God a king and a priest. Revelation 1:5-6(KJV)

O the height and depth and length and breadth of that love of Christ which passeth knowledge! Ephesians 3:18-19(KJV) that great love wherewith he loved me! Ephesians 2:4(KJV)

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and blessing; Revelation 5:12(KJV) for he was slain, and hath redeemed me to God by his blood. Revelation 5:9(KJV)

Thank God for the Cross of Christ and All Its Benefits

Thanksgiving 4.19 | KJV

For the full satisfaction which Christ made to the justice of God for the sin of man by the blood of his cross, for the purchases, victories, and triumphs of the cross, and for all the precious benefits which flow to me from the dying of the Lord Jesus.

Herein indeed God commendeth his love to me, in that while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me, Romans 5:8(KJV) that I might be reconciled to him by the death of his Son. Romans 5:10(KJV) Herein is love, not that I loved God, but that he loved me, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for my sins, 1 John 4:10(KJV) and not for mine only but for the sins of the whole world; 1 John 2:2(KJV) that he tasted death for every man, Hebrews 2:9(KJV) that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. Hebrews 2:14(KJV)

I bless thee that by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified; Hebrews 10:14(KJV) that he hath finished transgression, made an end of sin, made reconciliation for iniquity, and hath brought in an everlasting righteousness. Daniel 9:24(KJV)

That he hath redeemed me from the curse of the law by being made a curse for me. Galatians 3:13(KJV)

That what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God hath done by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, who by a sacrifice for sin, condemned sin in the flesh. Romans 8:3(KJV)

That he was wounded for my transgressions and bruised for my iniquities, and that the chastisement of my peace was upon him, and by his stripes I am healed: And that the Lord having laid upon him the iniquity of all his people, Isaiah 53:5-6(KJV) it pleased the Lord to bruise him and put him to grief. Isaiah 53:10(KJV)

Thank God for the Great Encouragement Christ Gave to Poor Sinners to Come to Him

Thanksgiving 4.18 | KJV

For the great encouragement Christ gave to poor sinners to come to him.

I bless thee that Jesus Christ came to call not the righteous, but sinners (such as myself) to repentance, Matthew 9:13(KJV) and had power on earth to forgive sin; Matthew 9:6(KJV) that he came to save his people from their sins, Matthew 1:21(KJV) and is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world; John 1:29(KJV) and that he is (to his honour, not to his reproach) a friend to publicans and sinners. Matthew 11:19(KJV)

I thank thee for the gracious invitation he gave to those who are weary and heavy laden to come to him for rest: Matthew 11:28(KJV) And for the assurance he hath given that whosoever comes unto him, he will in nowise cast him out. John 6:37(KJV)

That he made a gracious offer, that whosoever thirst might come unto him and drink. John 7:37(KJV)
