What are you thankful for?
On Thanksgiving Day many of us fill the day with the 3 Fs: Food, Football, Family. But I hope you will add a fourth F (Faith) and take time to thank God for your many blessings.
There are so many things we can give God thanks. In case you are short of ideas, this Sunday I will look at Psalm 136 and discover some inspired reasons we have as God’s people to give Him thanks.
Psalm 136 is a unique psalm for several reasons. The first thing most people notice is that every verse repeats the phrase “his mercy endureth for ever.” This is called an antiphonal pslam, where the worship leader would read or sing the first phrase of the verse and the congregation or choir would respond with “his mercy endureth for ever.” It is much like a responsive reading in some of our more traditional church services.
But Psalm 136 is also significant in that it lists a number of things for which God’s people can be thankful. The focus is on giving thanks for who God is and what God has done for His people.
I hope you will join me as I share my Thanksgiving sermon this Sunday, “Reasons for Giving Thanks” from Psalm 136.
Join us this Sunday @ 10:30 a.m.
