Thanksgiving Service

7 commands for the people of God

  1.   Shout joyfully to the Lord all the earth
  2.   Serve the Lord with gladness
    .       Serve = worship
    .            How is your heart during the day?  Your service at church?   Is your heart worshipful?
  3.   Come before Him
    .       Recognize the blessing of being able to come and worship
  4.   Know that the Lord Himself is God
    .        Our worship is to be intelligent and exclusive
    .        We do not worship a God Who is unknown or unknowable
    .                Jehovah – John 14:6
    .                Creator
    .                Redeemer – Shepherd
    .                We are His people – John 10:7-16
  5.   Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and praise
         It matters how we come to God.  It matters how we live our daily lives.  
  6.   Give thanks to Him
         It matters how we worship God. 
  7.   Bless His name
    .        The Lord is good – moral value
    .        His lovingkindness is everlasting
    .        His faithfulness to all generations

1.  Has God been good in the past?
2.  Has God been loving?
3.  Has He seen you through difficult times?

Then He will do it for whatever may come
