4th Dec 2016 – Thankfulness in all its contexts

December 16, 2016 Pastor Matt Bishop

The Advent candle theme this week is ‘Thankfulness’. And so… reflect upon and thank God for these texts on thankfulness, gratitude and Christ’s grace.

‘Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.’ Matthew 26:27

‘Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.’ Ps 100:4

‘I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.’ 1 Corinthians 1:4

‘So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.’ Colossians 2:6-7
