HOW COULD I NOT SAY "THANK YOU" FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME?





HOW COULD I NOT SAY "THANK YOU" FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME?



IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO YOU LORD AND TO SING PRAISES UNTO YOUR NAME 
                                                                                                                                          
            PSALM 92:1


My wife and I just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary.  I did not wait until yesterday to tell her that I love her and appreciated all the things she has done for me during these past 40 years.  I cannot help but be thankful for this blessing in my life.  How could I have not said Thank you.

Fifty years ago the Lord Jesus Christ reached out and forgave me of all my sins, and invited me to become a child of God.  I accepted His forgiveness and became a child of God.  I do not wait until a special day like Sunday to thank Him and remind Him how much I appreciate His love for me.  I cannot help but say Thank You to the Lord for this wonderful gift.  How could I have not said Thank you.

This month is Pastor's Appreciation Month and I have received many thanks by the loving people of this Church. I want to give thanks unto the Lord today for you, as I do many times during the week.  After I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all Christians, I cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers (Ephesians 1:15-16).  I cannot help but say Thank You to the Lord for you.  How could I not take the time to say to each of you today, Thank you.

I thank the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit for their presence in my life. I want to take this day to just say thanks for all they have done for me.  How could I not stop and take the time to say Thank You to my Heavenly Family.

I want to thank God for the wonderful things He has done for me. Many O LORD my God are Your wonderful works.  Which You have done.  And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order.  If I would declare and speak of them.  They are more than can be numbered.  (Psalms 40:5).

Today, I would like to number a few of the things I am thankful for.  Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the LORD, O my soul.  And forget not all His benefits:  Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all our disease.  Who redeems your life from destruction.  Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.  (Psalms 103:1-4).  

There are many more blessings He gives to you and me every day and we need to be more thankful and show the Lord how much we appreciate His goodness to us.  How could you not say thank you for the things He has done for you?

Thank You God for your gift of eternal life.  Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.  (2 Corinthians 9:15).  If you have received the Lord Jesus as your Savior, you have received a gift so great and wonderful; you will never understand how valuable it is until you step into Heaven.  How could you not say thank You, to God for giving you the only gift that could pay for your sins and give you the opportunity to go to Heaven?  For God so loved the world (YOU), that He gave His only Son, that whoever would believe on Him, would not perish, but have everlasting life  (John 3:16).

Thank You Lord Jesus for leaving Heaven and coming to Earth to die for my sins.  For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the Just for he unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but brought back to life by the Spirit. (I Peter 3:18).  He cares about you more than you know.  He puts it this way:  As the Father knows me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.  And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.  Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. (John 10:15-17).  How could i not say Thank You for doing this for me?

Thank You Holy Spirit for teaching me about the Love of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 14:26).  God lives inside of our lives through the Holy Spirit and we should always be thankful of His presence.  Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  For you were bought at a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.  (I Corinthians 6:19-20).  God cares enough for you to live with you through the Holy Spirit until He sees you face to face in Heaven.  How could I not say Thank You to the Holy Spirit for His presence in my life?

There are many ways to say thank You to the Lord.  

We can start with our lips.  By Him, then let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is with the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. (Hebrews 13: 15).

How can we not be thankful for:

All the things He has and is doing for us.

We give thanks to You O God, we give thanks!  For Your wondrous works that declare that Your name is near (Psalm 75:1)

For His forgiveness and mercy toward us:

O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!  For His mercy endures forever (Psalm 107:1)

For answered Prayer.

Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, Father, I thank You, that You have heard Me. John 11:41).
