THANK YOU

Sunday Morning Message by Pastor Russell Dean

 THANK YOU

 1Thessalonians 5:16-18

As was intended in the beginning, Thanksgiving was to be more a Holy Day than a holiday.

The smallest gifts are overlooked and under appreciated.  It’s the hard times that bring recognition and gratitude.

WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GRATEFUL PERSON?

1.      Grateful People Remember

Psalm 100:1-2

We are to remember to rejoice.  1 Thessalonians 5:16 says to “rejoice always”.

 2.      Grateful People Respond

 Grateful people respond in humility.

 1 Thessalonians 5:16 reminds us to respond with rejoicing in adversity as well as jubilant times.

 3.      Grateful People Recognize

 They recognize the goodness of God.

Recognize that grateful people recognize they need to be in a state of prayer each and every day.

Verse 18 says to be thankful “in everything” not “for everything”.

 CAPTAIN EDDIE RICKENBACKER

Phillipians 4: 19
