We have innumerable reasons to be thankful to God. A few of those reasons are described in Psalm 136, which reminds us to give thanks to God whose steadfast love endures forever. The Psalmist writes in a few lines about God’s defeat of Israel’s enemies, who were justly punished because of their wickedness. God is always justice and always renders as is fitting for the sins that are committed. Only those covered in the blood of Christ can have their sins washed away and be pure and righteous in the eyes of God.
