Thanksgiving With God’s Word

2 Corinthians 9:11-12

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.  This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.

1 Timothy 4:4-5

For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,  because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 7:17

I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

Psalm 100:4

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

Abundance

Thanksgiving08

“For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” Luke 12:48 KJV

When we give thanks this Thanksgiving, we should take time to consider if we are giving as much as we are receiving and what we can do better. We need to review our abundance and look for opportunities to share.  The most important thing that we can do is make sure that we do not pass up any opportunity to share God. Whether it is monetary, or with the message we send, or if it is simply with our actions in how we celebrate the day. For in everything we do, we are the face of God that people see, if they see our own thanksgiving, they can have a better understanding of God.

Psalm 95:2

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Psalm 100

King James Version (KJV)

100 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
