Re: To Be Thankful-THE CHALLENGE
Hebrews 12:28 – Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverance and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.
-we are receiving in Christ and unbreakable gift, an unshaken kingdom.
2 Cor 2:14 – But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of Him everywhere.
-Be thankful that He uses us to spread His “aroma”.
James 1:2-3 – Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Be thankful for the hard times, the work of The Lord is in them.
Just a few times the bible says we should be thankful. I tend not to be thankful for these. Its hard to keep these things in mind.
