KNOW THANK-YOU OR NO THANK-YOU?

 
"Was there no one to return and give thanks to God except this foreigner?" —Luke 17:18
 

Jesus healed ten lepers and taught us that:

  • We have a lot to be thankful for.
  • Most of us are probably not thankful most of the time.
  • Those who are thankful are often not the ones we expected to be thankful (see Lk 17:16).
  • Thankfulness is an act of faith (Lk 17:19).
  • Thankfulness can be a way of receiving salvation from Jesus (see Lk 17:19).

Because of Who God is and what love He has given us, the Lord commands us to:

  • "Render constant thanks" (1 Thes 5:18).
  • "Give thanks to God the Father always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Eph 5:20).
  • "Enter His gates with thanksgiving" (Ps 100:4).

Jesus died for you. Thank Him by living for Him. Happy "Thanks‑living!"

 
Prayer: Father, may thanksgiving take precedence over selfishness.
Promise: "Desire therefore My words; long for them and you shall be instructed." —Wis 6:11
Praise: Steve inspired his fellow Christians by leading them in prayers of thanksgiving even during great times of adversity and struggle.
