Series: Single Sermon
Author: Randy Tomko
It’s hard to know sometimes how to be thankful as life brings many troubles both large and small. How do we give thanks in all things? (Philippians 4:11-12) What does it mean to “enter His courts with thanksgiving and praise?” (Psalm 100) An old Russian tale of a man whose horse ran away and the story of Corrie and Betsie Ten Boom’s decision to thank God for the fleas in their Nazi concentration camp beds illustrate this timeless spiritual discipline.
6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7 (NIV)
