A Month of Thankfulness: Day Two

Today was Reformation Sunday at our church and we sang two hymns written by Martin Luther...A Mighty Fortress is Our God and Christ Jesus Lay in Death's Strong Bands. The second hymn was one I was completely unfamiliar with but the words as we sang it so strongly brought to mind all we have to be thankful for as God's adopted children. That third verse in particular painted such a vivid image of Jesus as the Passover lamb slain for us! And you know that Passover has been on my mind a lot lately! So today I am thankful for Martin Luther as a hymn writer (aside from his gifts to us as reformer) along with so many others that have gone before us to record the tenets of our faith in such beautiful words that clearly convey the depth of meaning of what has been done for us through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

I am doing a post each day of November focusing on something for which I am thankful, as are several other bloggers. Rebecca is compiling these posts at Rebecca Writes. Visit her to get the links or contribute thankful thoughts of your own!
