2019 Thanksgiving Message
In the United States of America we have a day set aside every year for giving thanks to God. Our forefathers sought God in times of war and great need and called for days of fasting and prayer – and thereupon was this great country established!
Today most holidays have lost their deep meaning and have become commercialized to profit the retail industry. Many that celebrate have no real understanding of the depth and meaning behind the day. Instead of a day to give special thanks to God, it has become turkey and football day. We live in an age where God is being removed instead of being lifted up!
Psalm 9:17: The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Let US NOT become that nation!! We have SO MUCH to be thankful for. Our country is so great that multitudes are trying to break into it to live the “American Dream”. We don’t want to forget the God in heaven from whom is every good and perfect gift.
James 1:17: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
The way God would have us show our thankfulness to Him is to serve Him according to His Word. Did you know that He promised us blessings if we follow, obey and live for Him?
Let us each take responsibility for ourselves and our families THIS Thanksgiving season to show our gratitude to the Almighty God in heaven, for He is worthy!
Ephesians 5:20: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Make the most of this wonderful season! Join us next Sunday for our worship service!
