Audio Sermon

Dear Beloved,

Thanksgiving to God

Let us meditate on Thanksgiving instances in Jesus’ life.

Jesus gave thanks in advance  to  – multiply Bread;  Mark 6:30-44

Jesus gave thanks in advance  before raising Lazarus from the dead; John 11:1-44

Jesus gave thanks in advance before his crucifixion on the cross; Matthew 26:26-30

In the gospel of Luke, Jesus healed ten lepers but only one Leper came back to give thanks and gratitude. Luke 17:11-19.

When we learn to give thanks to God in advance we will walk into our breakthroughs and destiny.

In our life, we give thanks to people when they promise to do something. How about thanking God for his promises in our lives. He is a faithful God. None of his promises will fail.  So let us give him thanks for all his promises and purpose in your life – for your breakthroughs, for your health, for your future house, for your future  jobs and careers, for those who wait for children, for the children, for those who are seeking alliances  -for your Godly husband and wife.  God says your thanksgiving will make way for breakthroughs.
