Why Should I Be Thankful ?


What does a Christian have to be thankful about?

The Promises of God:

1. God promised to supply our needs
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in
glory by Christ Jesus.

2. God promised a way of escape from temptation
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to
man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are
able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to
bear it.

3. God promised that His grace will see us through
2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my
strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my
infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

4. God promised us victory over death
1 Corinthians 15:55-57 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

5. God promised that all things work together for our good.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love
God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

6. God promised us salvation through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.

7. God promised us eternal life.
John 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any
man pluck them out of my hand.
