A GRATEFUL LIFE
Main Text : 1 Thessalonians 5:18
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you”.
Psalms 103:4 – “Bless the Lord O’my soul … who redeeemeth my life from destruction …
This kind of lifestyle of gratitude is evidence of a grateful heart/life. One expectation of the Almighty God is the appreciation of His children for the numerous blessings He bestows on them. It is unfortunate, that some humans have been ungrateful. They forget the goodness of God soon after receiving His blessings and begin to speak against the lover of their souls.
After the Lord Jesus healed ten lepers, He expected them to return and say “Glory to God in the highest”, but only one of the ten came and He asked “…. Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? They were not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger”. Ingratitude is an act of robbery against God. The greatest danger of ingratitude is the giving of the glory that belongs to God to someone or something else.
This is practical idolatry, punishable for all eternity. In addition, it is dangerous not to be thankful because your joy cannot be full if you are not thankful. We must embrace this offer with every sense of gratitude.
BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS.
PRAYER – Father, I thank you for the salvation of my soul, through Christ my Lord, help me to live by His teachings to the glory of your Holy name. Amen
