THE YEAR OF A NEW THING



SERMON ON SUNDAY 4TH MARCH 2012


Title:Thanksgiving - How Much He Did

Text: 1Cori. 1:4-9 ;  Luke 17:12-19

Be aggressively Thankful. When it comes to living, do you take things for granted or take them with gratitude? Do you count God's blessings, or do you discount them, Because Thanksgiving is the attitude of a productive life.

No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks. How long has it been since you've thanked those closest to you? The person who is not thankful for what he's got isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.

Ingratitude never ends - John Mason

People who forgets ( or never learn) the language of gratitude will never find themselves on speaking terms with happiness. They could be on speaking terms but not with happiness if gratitude is missing. Gratitude is an ingredient for joy in marriage, church, work-place etc.

Thanksgiving, you will find, creates power in your life because it opens the generators of your heart to respond gratefully, to receive joyfully, and to react creatively.

The best rule is: whatever you are given, gratefully receive it. Whatever help you receive, be grateful. When You spend your time thanking others for the good things, there won't be any time left to complain about about the bad.

Illustration: When you return from work before you start complaining about how the children have messed. Up the house, first thank God for Children in the house and that they can mess up the house. Thank God for having a job to go to and for journey mercies etc

There are three enemies of Personal Peace - William WardRegret over yesterday's mistakesAnxiety over tomorrows problemsIngratitude for today's blessing.

Story- a young lady came into UK with a visiting VISA, the very week she arrived, she started worrying about her extension, worried over the short stay on her tickets, affected the people around her and never enjoyed her short stay until she returned. On getting back to Nigeria, she started regretting she did not take time to enjoy her self when she was in UK.

If you can't be satisfied with what you have, be thankful for where you are coming from and what you have escaped. People sleep and they don't wake up People party and get drugged and rapedPeople get carried away, jumped the red light and never escaped the law or accidentBad things also happen to good people

We all have a lot for which to be thankful. For example: no matter what house you live in, wouldn't you rather be there than the best hospital or the best prison in the city? No matter the type of car you drive, wouldn't you prefer it to the best Ambulance? No matter the kind of bed you have, wouldn't you prefer it to the best casket? Count your blessings at every opportunity, take some time to reflect on all you have.

Apostle Paul was a man who was always full of thanks to God. After the book of Pslam, the writings of Paul shows more gratitude to God than any of the other books in the bible.
Paul was wise enough to look back to where God has brought him to where he was: a man who persecuted the church day and night, threw many Christians into prison, turtured them with wipes,rods and starvation. He was there in Act Chapter 8 as a chairman consenting to the murder of Steven.

God showed him great grace and made him a partaken of the inheritance of the Saints in Christ Jesus. He became a man defending the same church that he vowed to destroy.
Paul could not explain the INFINTE mercy of God, why God chose him as a vessel of mercy and not of destruction. He was so grateful to God that he called all his suffering a LIGHT AFFLICTION - 2Corithians 4:17; 2Cori. 11:16-21

A grateful man is one who has learned of the mercy and grace of God to look at what God has done and not what He has not done. - Paul said I will not boast in my flesh but in Christ, because He understood what Christ has done for him.

The reason why many are not humble is because they do not know how much Christ has done for them.
The reason why many are not merciful is because they do not know how much Christ has done for them.
The reason why many do not give to the work of God is because they do not know how much Christ has done for them.
The reason why many do not appreciate their spouses or children is because they do not know how much Christ has done for them.
The reason why many serve God on their own terms is because they do not know how much Christ has done for them.

Illustration: the old man that came into the church to tell a story about his son and his friend on how he had to chose who to save when their boat capsized. He saved his son's friend because he was a sinner and his son a believer as the scriputure says "to be absent in the body is to be present before the Lord". He knew his son will go to heaven, but for the friend, no. so he saved a soul and not just a life.

The same the Father did for you and I.

Paul knew that he was destined for hell but Christ intercepted and saved his life by giving His own life. If we can look at a few things that Christ has done for us, we would be forever grateful to God and brush aside the light affliction that we suffer now, the light affliction do not spare anyone including the Pastor or the General overseer. "For it is common to all men"

How Much Did Jesus Do? And why should we be Thankful!

1. He paid the ultimate price for our sin and gave us access into God's presence - John 19:20
2. He gave us power - Act 1:8, Luke 10:19
3. He made us rich in His mercies, grace, health, wealth, wisdom etc - 2 Cor.8:9, Pro.10:22 ; 111John2
4. He gave us His Word ( Covenant) - Ps.119:89; Ps.132:2, John 1:1-3, Heb. 6:18
5. He gave us Eternal life and a sure place in with Him in Heaven - John14:1-4, 1John 5:11; John 3:15
6. He gave us the Holy Spirit, not leaving us as orphan - John14:15-18

Conclusion
A proud man is seldom a grateful man for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves; a proud man can hardly recognise what God has done for him how much more what man has done for him.
Don't be a man who has a highly developed instinct for being unhappy, Instead, "be glad for all God has done for you and for all He is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and prayerful always"

Romans 12:12rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; (Romans 12:12 NKJV)

cheerfully expectant. Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. (Romans 12:12 MSG)

Find fifty things to be thankful for today. Creative ideas will spring forth as a result of the mental conversation you are having with yourself. The most highly satisfied life can be found in being thankful.

Thankful words don't cost much, yet they accomplish more than can be perceived. Talk to God, thankful words.

Go to two-three people and tell them what the Lord had done for you.

Halleluyah
