Getting Prepared for Thankfulness

LJCF logo small

As you prepare for the Thanksgivings holiday rush, prepare to be thankful.  Whether it’s easy to be thankful this week or especially hard this year, fix your eyes on Jesus and thankfulness will spring up from whatever situation you’re in.

Last year, one of the Life’s Journey elders, Tary Hanson, shared a message on how to prepare for Thanksgiving.

As you find yourself running around preparing for tomorrow’s big event, take the time to listen to this powerful message.

Tary reminds us the Bible contains so many examples of thanksgiving. In it we are told to remain in a thankful attitude showing thankful actions.  As the psalmist wrote in Psalm 100:4:

Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.

Tary shares insights from a story of thankfulness found in Luke 17 and teaches that:

  1. Gratitude produces worship
  2. Miracles produces gratitude
  3. Obedience produces miracles
  4. Knowing God’s love for us produces obedience

Scripture Reference: Luke 17:11-19; Psalm 100:4
