“Giving Thanks To The Lord!”

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:4,5). “To you, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise” (Daniel 2:23) “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (Colossians 3:17).

Message summary: In increasingly secular America there is a vague focus on being thankful without specifying to whom. The Scripture says, “Be thankful to Him and praise His Name” (Psalm 100). “We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds” (Psalm 75:1).

“Our Greatest Possession”

“A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15b). “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances” (Philippians 4:11). “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

Message summary: Our greatest blessing is not what we possess but by Whom we are possessed. “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

“God’s Ubiquitous Blessings”

‘Because of your father’s God, who helps you, because of the Almighty, who blesses you with blessings of the skies above, blessings of the deep springs below, blessings of the breast and womb. Your father’s blessings are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, than the bounty of the age-old hills” (Genesis 49:25,26). “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will—to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us” (Ephesians 1:3-8).

Message summary: Today we consider God’s ubiquitous blessings, the greatest being “the riches of God’s grace lavished on us”.

“Honey In The Rock”

“But He would feed you with the finest of the wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you” (Psalm 81:16). “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103). “My son, eat honey, for it is good, Yes, the honey from the comb is sweet to your taste” (Proverbs 24:13). “Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.’ So I opened my mouth, and He fed me this scroll. He said to me, ‘Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you.’ Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth” (Ezekiel 3:1-3).

Message summary: The Psalmist wrote, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Throughout the day may we all taste of the goodness of the Lord as it lingers in our thoughts and thereby in our actions! Perhaps we all need a sign that reads, “Spiritual Munching Allowed!” or better yet, “Spiritual Munching Encouraged!
