It is natural to give thanks to someone for the good things he has done for me. Then how about God? Should we give thanks to God? If then, for what? Definitely we should give thanks to God for the salvation. Then why does God give us salvation?

If we have done something good and receive salvation, this cannot be called grace or gift from God. It can be considered as reward for the good things we have done. However, the bible teaches that we did not receive salvation from God due to some good things that we have done. Then why does God give us salvation?

The bible teaches that God has chosen us before the creation of the world in Christ. (Ephesians 1:4) The reason God has chosen us was not for the good things in us. God has chosen us by the grace.

2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.

God gives salvation not because of our good deeds, but because of the grace of God. This can be found in the selection of the Jews as the people of God in the Old Testament.

Deuteronomy 9:5 It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land; but on account of the wickedness of these nations, the Lord your God will drive them out before you, to accomplish what he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 6 Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the Lord your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.

Even though the Jews were stubborn people who did not listen to God and obey his commands. God chose them, however, by His grace and gave them the Promised Land.

It is the same to us. God chose us and promised the spiritual Canaan, the Promised Land. And it is not because of our righteousness, but because of the grace of God. Then how much should we give thanks to God for the grace of God.

We might face some difficulties while living on this earth. However, now we must give thanks to God in whatever circumstances we are for the great love and grace of God for us. Even though we are stiff-necked people, God has chosen us as the objects of salvation out of the grace of God. When we realize this, we have no choice but to give thanks to God.

    God chose us as children of God before the creation of the world and revealed to us the truth of forgiveness of sins and the blessings of eternal life. I am truly grateful for the sacrifice, precious love and grace of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother who loved the stubborn and rebellious sinners of heaven so much.

    We are sinners who have committed sins against God in heaven. As sinners we have been waiting for the sentence of our penalty which is death. The earthly life is just temporary just as death row inmate are waiting in the prison for their sentence which is death. We should receive the forgiveness of sins during the earthly life. If we miss this chance in this life, there is no way for us to avoid the punishment of hell. The firgiveness of sins is given through the blood of Christ. And the passover of the new covenant is the only way that we can receive the firgiveness of sins. World Mission Society Church of God is the only church that keeps the passover which was taught by Christ Ahnsahnghong. Come to the Church of God and receive the forgiveness of sins!

    God’s salvation is given freely. However, it is given within the promise given by God. The promise given to us is the New Covenant Passover. In order to be saved, we must at least keep this New Covenant Passover.

    I thank Father and Mother for saving sinners who were destined to die into eternal life.

    We are sinners who are destined to die. We are unworthy to be saved. However, God has pity on us and open the way to heaven again. Let us obey God to the end. We should not commit sin to God by disobeying the words of God as we once did in heaven.

    We are committed in heaven so casting down in the sinful world.
    But 2nd coming Christ Ahn Sahng Hong and Jerusalem Mother came to this earth for our salvation.
    We give eternal thanks to Elohim God’s love and sacrifice.
    We need to follow God commandments.
