Summary: To show our thanfulness to God, we should Ponder His Greatness, Prepare our hearts for His entrance, Practice His Teachings, and Proclaim His messaage to others.
Intro: At a Thanksgiving dinner table, the youngest
member of the group (age 4) volunteered to say the
blessing. It went as follows: "God is great, God
is good...LET US THANK HIM! Amen." While some would
argue that she forgot part of the blessing, the impact
of that prayer penetrated the hearts of those present.
WE SHOULD THANK GOD! WE DON’T THANK HIM ENOUGH!
HOW CAN WE THANK HIM??? CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
I. BY PONDERING HIS GREATNESS (Psalm 8)
II.BY PREPARING OUR HEARTS FOR HIS ENTRANCE
*sinner’s prayer...confessing sin, coming
clean with God about our need*
III. BY PRACTICING WHAT HE TEACHES
*Walk the Walk as well as talk the talk.*
*The best witness is a life lived for Jesus*
IV. BY PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL TO ALL WITH
WHOM WE COME IN CONTACT
*Paul said "I am not ashamed of the Gospel"
*Neither should we be!!
By doing these things, we can live our lives in
gratitude for God’s Greatness and Goodness....
INDEED, HE IS GREAT AND HE IS GOOD...LET US THANK HIM!
