Being Thankful (Lesson 2)
Today My Brothers and Sisters, we lift our eyes up towards heaven and give the Lord all our praises for He has brought us through the trials and tribulations of this life and allowed us to be right where we are on this very day. Let our hearts be filled with gratitude for the awesome works He has done in chiseling us out and making us the person we are today and who we are to become in the future.
LET US PRAY:
All wise God our Heavenly Father, we enter into your presence with thanksgiving and into the Holy gates with praise. For on this day Father, there is so much that we have to be thankful for, and if we try to list all the things we have been blessed with, there would not be enough space are time to list them all. So Father I will just say, thank you for every blessing that I have received, for every blessing you have provided to the people you have placed in my life, for all the readers, followers, bloggers, ministers and especially our disciples that are building ministries all over the world. For without you Heavenly Father, there would be no us, so Father we go forth this day lifting up your Holy name in high praise and with great honor because you have given so much and asked for so little in return. We thank you Father for all that you do, to enrich our lives and make us a better people, in Jesus name, Amen!
Today’s Scriptures on Being Thankful:
Come, let’s shout praises to God,
raise the roof for the Rock who saved us!
Let’s march into his presence singing praises,
lifting the rafters with our hymns!
And why? Because God is the best,
High King over all the gods.
In one hand he holds deep caves and caverns,
in the other hand grasps the high mountains.
He made Ocean—he owns it!
His hands sculpted Earth! (Psalms 95:1-5 MSG)
Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives. (1 Corinthian 1:4-5 MSG)
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17 ESV)
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV)
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
(Psalms 106:1 ESV)
For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. (Ephesians 1:15-16 ESV)
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. (2 Corinthians 9:11-12 ESV)
QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.
TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to,“BELIEVE!”
Now repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE in glory.”
We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers. You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us. We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions. May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!
