“But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. For truly I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it” (Matthew 13:16-17).
What the prophets and the righteous of old could only anticipate, the coming of the Messiah, you and I have experienced in Christ Jesus. We are the beneficiaries of the fulness of time that has come (Galatians 4:4); when God sent forth his Son. The leading personalities within the Old Testament would consider us the most fortunate (blessed) people in all of human history. I trust you feel the same way. Where there is an awareness of God’s blessings, thanksgiving abounds.
