ThanksLIVING!!!


Dear Friends in Jesus,


“Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,

and give Him the glory, great things He has done.”


How many times have we sung this hymn to express our joy and thanksgiving to Christ?

These words show the gratitude that is in our hearts for the wonderful privilege of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, Lord, and Friend. It is my hope that you can join in praise and thanksgiving at this time of the year for the many blessings that come to us each day because we are children of the King.


We can praise Him for the free gift of salvation from sin—the joy of praying and inviting Jesus into our lives and experiencing the cleansing away of all our sin and a whole new life in

Christ.


We can praise Him for the assurance of a heavenly home—to know that when we die we will be with our Lord forever.(2 Corinthians 5:6–9)


We can praise Him that He is with us every day and under all circumstances.(Matthew 28:20)


We can praise Him for He provides for all our needs as we daily depend upon

Him.(Philippians 4:19)


We can praise Him for the privilege of living in a country of freedom and opportunity.


We can praise Him for family and friends who love us.


We can praise Him for a loving and caring church family where the life giving message of the Gospel of Christ is central.


We can praise Him for ———————————————————(you fill in the blank(s)


In this season of thanksgiving may we truly count our blessings but not confine our

thankfulness to just this time of the year! Every day we should show our gratitude and praise to our living Christ by the way we live our lives! That’s called “THANKSLIVING!! And that’s the way to LIVE!!


Your friend in our Lord,

Bob Hinckley
