TOPIC: In Everything Give Thanks (scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 6 September 2020 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Lord, please help me to thank you always.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader appreciates members for attending House Fellowship meetings throughout the last Redeemed calendar year, bearing in mind that without them there would have been no House Fellowship in that particular center.

MEMORY VERSE: “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

BIBLE PASSAGE: Psalm 100:4, Luke 17:11-19 (KJV)

Psalm 100:4; Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Luke 17:11-19;
11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,

16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

TEXT REVIEW: Psalm 100:4, Luke 17:11-19
i. God deserves praises in every season
ii. Let God’s name be glorified always

INTRODUCTION: It is the will of God for us to be thankful to Him 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
Giving thanks is the master key to gaining entrance into His gate Psalms 100:4, it is a response to the goodness and mercy of God. Regardless of our present situation, whether good, bad or delightful, we are to give Him thanks Ephesians 5:20. Our God deserves our thanksgiving particularly when we reflect on the journey of 2019/2020 spiritual year which He has faithfully seen us through. Nothing will stop us not to also convey the joy of our salvation better than regularly giving God our sincere thanks.
