We Give Thanks

We Give Thanks

Jubilee Fam,

Once again and right on time, Thanksgiving is upon us. We, through it all, have much to be thankful for. I hope it will be a day of reflection, remembrance, good food, and good company as we take some time off and give thanks for all who our Father is and all he has done for us in Christ. Scripture gives us plenty to feast our hearts upon even as we look forward to dining at the dinner table. Let me give you some of which I encourage you to pick one as one of the many things you can share with someone for a reason for your thankfulness.

  • We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds — Ps 75:1
  • Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever — Ps 106:1
  • I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds — Ps 9:1
  • But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed — Ro 6:17.
  • But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ — 1 Cor 15:57
  • And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins — Col 1:9–14
  • And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign — Rev 11:16,17

There are plenty more texts to give our hearts a full meal of reasons why we ought to give thanks! Know that the Jubilee elders are thankful to our good Father for you! You are a source of great joy to us, and we count it a great privilege to walk with Christ together with you. 

Much love, 

Pastor Lew
