Grateful Heart

 

 

 

Text:
2 Corinthians 4:15-18
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

 

 

Ephesians 5:20
Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 

Introduction:
Some people don’t see any reason to be grateful to God when they are faced with challenges. This is because human beings generally use the wrong measurement to quantify God’s benevolence. Such flaws include categorizing God’s blessings as physical only while other salient benefits like miracles of sleeping and waking up are seen as irrelevant. May God help us to be ever grateful to Him in Jesus’s Name.

 

 

 

We Must Be Grateful To God For The Following Reasons;
1. Salvation, sanctification and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 

 

 

2. Daily Christian growth unto maturity in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

 

 

 

 

3. Daily protection and provisions of all our needs.
Psalm 103:1-5
Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 

 

 

 

4. Fulfilment of His promises as He has stated in His word.
Matthew 17:20
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

 

 

 

5. Victory over visible and invisible enemies.
Colossians 1:12-13
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

 

 

 

 

6. Hope of eternal life after this world.
Colossians 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

 

 

 

Conclusion:
Always count your blessings by naming them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

 

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus.
