Sermon Notes

Approaching the American holiday of Thanksgiving gives each of us cause to consider what we are thankful for and how we choose to give thanks. Of course, Thanksgiving is not just the fourth Thursday of each November, most of us understand thanksgiving is a daily exercise of our conscious will in spite of the trouble that comes to us with each new day. A thankful heart speaks to a strong theology of God and of His providence regardless of life’s circumstances and suffering. It rains on the just and the unjust. What God allows and permits in our lives for good Satan desires for evil. God is in the construction business: He seeks to build us up and equip us for the trials and trouble tomorrow will inevitably bring. Satan is in the destruction business and he seeks to kill, steal and destroy. Life and godliness, joy and happiness are inextricably linked to a thankful heart. How about you? Are you thankful… in everything? We will look to Paul in I Thessalonians 5:18
 and King David in Psalm 18: to discover how to give thanks in all things. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!
