Pastor’s thoughts:

  • In God’s word it is evident that God desires for us to be thankful children of his Kingdom
  • Being thankful is important because it praises God.
  • Being thankful is important because it shows faith in God.
  • Being thankful is important because Jesus paid it all because He loves us.

-Luke 17:11-19.  Only one leper returns to give thanks.

How can we be thankful?

  • Obedience – acting on God’s directing by the Holy Spirit through prayer and God’s word
  • Sacrifice- giving up something for a spiritual cause
  • Obedience is better than sacrifice
