5th Sunday Topical – Thankfulness

Being thankful is one of the most important character traits a Christian can have. We will touch on many passages, but we will launch our sermon with two texts in particular, Philippians 4:5b-6, and 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. Our five sections are:
1.) the importance of thankfulness,
2.) we will define thankfulness,
3.) we will learn how thankfulness is always due,
4.) we’ll learn how to foster a heart of thankfulness, and finally
5.) we will take stock of many things we have to be thankful for.

Philippians 4:5

Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; (ESV)

b-6

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (ESV)
