Gates of Thanksgiving
I've been getting my notes ready for my Sunday sermon. The subject is Thanksgiving. You may ask why a message on Thanksgiving now? Because thanksgiving is to be an ongoing lifestyle for the child of God--not just a once a year event.
Rather than go into the detail of each verse, I'm simply giving the folks the Scripture reference and let the Holy Spirit speak to their hearts. That's what I've done here. If you are really thankful to God for what He has done, then take a few minutes to look up the verses and let the Holy Spirit speak directly to you from His Word.
Oh, I could comment on each verse, but what does God want to speak directly to you? Take the time to be quiet before the Lord and listen.
