Of course, the thing I'm most grateful for is the fact that Jesus Christ humbled himself and became one of us in order to die for us. Just as human beings, Adam and Eve, were the ones that closed paradise to the human race, so another human, Jesus, would be the one to reopen paradise to us. God loves us so much that he sacrificed his own son for the rest of us. God's love and forgiveness gives me hope that someone even as wretched as I can one day spend eternity with Him in the glory of heaven. Thank you Lord for your love, forgiveness, and the gift of your son , Jesus.
