Be Thankful!

November 27, 2011

Colossians 3:15Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful[2170].

Being thankful means to be grateful; grateful enough to express this gratitude to the one who has shown you favor.

Jesus Christ is our peace. It’s only through His sacrifice, His blood that we can have fellowship and peace with God(Eph 2:13-14;Rom 5:1-2). Only because of Jesus, our Passover[Lamb](1Cor 5:7), can we come before God with a grateful heart and offer our thanks.

When we do this in our own heart the peace of Christ rules!

1 Thessalonians 5:18In everything give thanks[2168]; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

When we come before God with a grateful heart and offer our thanks in everything the peace of Christ rules no matter what our circumstances!

Philippians 4:6-7Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving[2169], let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

We can can give thanks through Jesus on our own or together as part of His body. Through Jesus we can be full of gratitude and rejoice exceedingly together for His indescribable gift!

Hebrews 13:15Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that give thanks[3670] to His name.

2 Corinthians 9:15Thanks[5485] be to God for His indescribable gift!

The Altar Place

July 4, 2011

Genesis 12:7-8 … Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, I will give this land to your posterity. So Abram built an altar there to the Lord, Who had appeared to him.

8From there he pulled up [his tent pegs] and departed to the mountain on the east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the Lord and called upon the name of the Lord.

The Altar Place

The altar place
A place of grace
To evermore seek the Lord’s face.

In the secret place
From His holy hill He answers me
His light and truth, they guide me
To the altar of God
My God, my Jesus, my exceeding joy. -Ps 43:3-4

As the deer pants
So my soul thirsts
For the living God -Ps 42:1-2
Behold the beauty of the Lord!
Rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory! -1 Pe 1:18

The altar place
A place of Christ
Thru the blood of the Lamb
A place of grace
A place of rejoicing
To evermore seek the His face.

1 Chronicles 16:11 Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek His face and to be in His presence continually!

Psalm 27:4-7
One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD
And to meditate in His temple.
5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle;
In the secret place of His tent He will hide me;
He will lift me up on a rock.
6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice,
And be gracious to me and answer me.


Hebrews 13:15
Through Him[Jesus] then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.

Christ is both our altar and our sacrifice, our High priest.

A Sacrifice of Praise

February 23, 2011

Hebrews 13:15 NIV  Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess His name.

Through Jesus! Without Jesus we can not bear fruit.

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. -Jn 15:4

Through Jesus! Together as we assemble and offer a sacrifice of praise – a thank offering: singing praises to honor His name
—> this is a way of abiding with Him and bearing fruit
—> the fruit of our lips!

Why should we assemble together and honor His name in this way?

  1. Because of His mercy, unfailing love and faithfulness and because His promises are backed by all the honor of His name.
  2. This is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Psalm 138:2 I bow before Your holy Temple as I worship. I will give thanks to Your name for Your unfailing love and faithfulness, because Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your name.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything{in all circumstances} give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Lord help us to always come before You offering our praises with our whole hearts. Thank You that as we do this we will abide in You and You in us.
