Welcome Home Pastor and those who traveled to the Holy Land! We are thankful that you are home safe and look forward to you sharing your trip with us in the near future.
Our founding fathers knew it was very important to be thankful. On October 31, 1785, James Madison, Chief architect of the Bill of Rights included a Bill of Rights to Virginia Legislature for, “Appointing days of public fasting and thanksgiving.” In 1789 George Washington proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving.
PSALM 92:1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the lord and to sing praises unto thy name, o most high
We should be thankful for all the blessings from God, thankful for each other, thankful for our church and the good news that we have the Lord and each other. We should be thankful for our freedom to worship according to the Word of God. We are very blessed!
We should be Thankful to God!
- He Saves Us—Salvation—Jesus died on a Cross-John 3:16
- He Loves Us—We love Him because He first loved us-1 John 4:19
- He Forgives Our Sins—If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.-1 John 1:9
- He Provides For Us–Jehovah Jireh—The Lord will provide
- He Listens to Us—Able to pray—God of universe-Lets us pray to Him
- He Provides a Home in Heaven—I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you I’ll come again-John 14
A thankful heart and spirit connects us with what really matters in life. We all need our lives built upon the foundation of a thankful heart.
Let’s pray together for the Lord to help us develop a Thankful Heart.
We are thankful for our Lord, for Trinity Baptist Church, and we are thankful for you!
