Topic: Creativity in Thanksgiving

(Teens Open Heaven 26 September 2018)

Memorise: And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Colossians 3:15

Read: Luke 17:11-19 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Isaiah 7-9, Galatians 4

MESSAGE:

Sometime ago, I read about a man who was attacked by armed robbers. He was robbed of his property and beaten. Yet, he went on to thank God. Many who saw no reason for him to thank God began to ask why he had come to thank God. To them, if he had escaped the armed robbers or his property was intact, those would be justifiable reason to thank God.

The man said he was thanking God that he was robbed but was not a robber himself, moreover, he had something that somebody considered valuable to steal; he was also thanking God that the robbers didn’t take his life. He didn’t take for granted all the things the others didn’t even see! Genuine thanksgiving calls for creativity.

Action Point: Be creative as you think of what God has done for you, and thank Him for them.

Hymn 10:

1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!

2. Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a Friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our ev’ry weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

3. Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield You;
You wilt find a solace there
