Words of Life: Appreciation – Giving Thanks – Nov 19th 2014

Appreciation – Giving Thanks

We are entering the season of Thanksgiving; and we, as a country and people of God, have many things to thank God for. Remember the focus of our Thanksgiving meal and celebration is God.  He is the one that provides food for us.  God is the One that has given us resources to enjoy family and friends during this season of the year.  The Bible says in Psalms 24 that “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it.”  God created the world and we are his earthly children.  He cares about us to give us good food, shelter and jobs.  He is the loving Creator and Savior, that also provides for our emotional and spiritual needs.  He places us in a group of people called the church, that loves and cares for us.  This is how our emotional needs are provided for.  He sent his Son, Jesus to live among us and die on a cross for our sin, to bring us back into relationship with Him.  This takes care of our spiritual needs.  We have a loving creator God that brings a comprehensive solution for humanity worldwide.  Let’s celebrate this Thanksgiving by telling God how much we appreciate his love for us in such wonderful and complete ways.

Be blessed as you are thankful,
Pastor David Greenidge
