 SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2014 THANKSGIVING MESSAGE FROM PASTOR TAYLOR It a world such as ours, a world
riddled with violence, sickness,
trouble, sorrow, pain and suffering, it
could be asked, "What have we to be
thankful for?" The normal answer
given is that we should be thankful
because we are still here. To the
believer, our gratitude is not based on
the condition of our world or
dependent upon the things we have or
don't have. However, our gratitude is
founded upon the biblical principle
that to be thankful especially unto the
Lord is a form of worship. Psalm100:5
says "Be thankful unto Him and bless
His name." This is not a request but it
is a command. Thanksgiving is apart
of our worship and our prayer
language.
The world has set aside a day for
everyone to give thanks. Thanksgiving
is a wonder season for family to get
together or for people to show
kindness to those less fortunate.
Many people will receive love,
support, meals, and an outpouring
from others who believe in acts of
charity. All of that is good and is a
part of the works motivated by
faith. However, the real spirit of
"thanksgiving" is ongoing everyday.
Because the Lord is good everyday, his
mercy is everlasting everyday, and his
truth still endures forever, everyday!
So give thanks unto the Lord for He is
good.
