We have begun a new sermon series!
As we are approaching the holiday of Thanksgiving, we come to the end of the 4 Habits of Giving Thanks series. This week, we look at the habit of "Growing" because the Christian life is one of continuous growth in giving thanks. When we live into the habit of grace, knowing that we don't get what we deserve, then it opens our living to responding to what God has done. In Philippians 4, we find the Apostle Paul in jail (or house arrest) and possibly sensing that the end is near. But, the Philippians send him a gift that helps him to grow in giving thanks to God and to the Philippians. As you read Philippians 4:4-13, how will you grow in giving thanks? Philippians 4:4-13: Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-- think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (NIV)
