"Thanks | Giving" - Psalm 100 (November 27, 2022)
"Thanks | Giving" - Psalm 100 (November 27, 2022)
Pastor Josh Hall concludes this 2-part series on "ThanksGiving - A Biblical Perspective on Gratitude." He begins with this premise: "Gratitude always expresses itself in giving." Pastor Josh then goes on to discuss three ways we can express our gratitude: 1.   By Our Speech      Expressed through our:      1) Praise (Ps. 33:2-3)      2) Prayer (Col. 1:3; Phil. 1:3-5; 4:6)      3) Witness (Ps. 108:3-4; 2 Cor. 4:15)  2.  Through Our Actions      "Gratitude is never suppressed, but is always expressed." (Phil. 1:21; Col. 3:16-17; Rom. 12:1) We need to examine our:      1) Priorities      2) Attitudes      3) Finances      4) Gifts/Talents 3.   In Our Hearts      1) God looks at the heart (1 Sam. 16:7)      2) Peace and thankfulness in our hearts (Col. 3:15)      3) Our delight is in HIM! (Ps. 37:4)
