INTRODUCTION:

People are other too brief and ignore details or too busy to glorify God and thank Him for His blessings (Psalms 103:2). Usually, many believers focus on what God has not done than on what He has done. Giving of thanks is the most distinctive marks of a true believer (1 Thess. 5:158). Therefore, knowing the basis of thanksgiving is a necessity for Christians.

LESSON OUTLINES:

THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE

ACCEPTABLE THANKSGIVING

1. THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE

Description of Thanksgiving

A. Thanksgiving is the act of appreciation or showing gratitude to someone especially for good deeds.

i. The bible commands believers to thank God(Psalm 50:14; Philippians 4:6).

ii. This is good (Psalms 92:1) and pleasing to God regardless of circumstances or conditions (1 Thess. 5:8).

iii. The call to give thanks to God is clearly expressed in the bible (1 Chron.16:8; Psalms 105:1, etc).

iv. Every believer must appreciate what God is doing and declare privately! (Dan 6:10) and publicly (Psalm 35:18).

v. Thanksgiving should, therefore, be cultivated like a habit (Colossians 3:17).

The above terms contain the idea of giving thanks and honour to one who is worthy of praise.

Thanksgiving is essential for the following reasons:

A. Giving thanks to God keeps us in the right perspective of our relationship with Him (Psalm 30:4; 106:1).

i. When our hearts are filled with thanksgiving, we keep the sins and temptations of greed, selfishness, and self-sufficiency away (Romans 7:23-25).

ii. As we thank God daily, we are reminded of all God has given us and that everything we have is from God (John 3:27; James 1:17).

B. The following are other important reasons for thanksgiving:

i. For the gift of Christ (2 Corinthians 9:15), His power and reign (Rev. 11:17).

ii. For the salvation of our souls (Psalm 103:2-4).

iii. We are also to be thankful, not only for the things we like, but for the circumstances we do not like (1 Thess. 5:18).

We do not thank Him for evil, but that He is sustaining us through it (James 1:12:13).

We do not thank Him for harm He did not cause, but we thank Him when He gives us the strength to endure it (1 Corinthians 15:57; 2 Corinthians 12:9).

iv. We should thank Him for His great promises, knowing that all things will work for our good (Romans 8:28).

v. When we give God our thanksgiving the way the bible tells us, we release supernatural authority over whatever situation we are facing (Romans 8:37).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1:
Students should mention the unpleasant situations for which they found difficult to thank God.

2. ACCEPTABLE THANKSGIVING

Conditions for acceptable thanksgiving.

A. We must present ourselves as living sacrifices before God (Roman 12:1-2)

i. God must accept us before He can accept our thanksgiving/offerings (Gen. 4:3-5).

ii. Only genuine children of God (John 1:12; Romans 8:1) with ‘clean hands and pure minds/conscience’ can give acceptable thanks to God (Psalm 24:3-5).

iii. We must, therefore, live uprightly (Psalm 15:1-5).

B. Believe God for who He is and what He does with an assurance in our hearts of greater things He will do (Psalm 107:8. Hebrews 11:6; Ephesians 5:20).

Anyone with a heart of gratitude should not be coerced into thanksgiving (2 Corinthians 9:7). Rather, it should flow from the inner man to the outside (Psalm 95:2; 100:4).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2:
Is it possible that a believer offers an unacceptable thanksgiving unto God?
