Thanks be to God

Thanks be to God

This year we are not holding midweek Advent services. We are instead re-using our advent recordings from 2020.

As we celebrate this thanksgiving holiday, we should look to Christ for what we are the most thankful.  Like the leper who praised God “with a loud voice”, since we have even more for which we can be thankful than other men. Our sins are forgiven; our health will be restored; we will see God.

From our sermon text in Luke 17,

11On the way to Jerusalem [Jesus] was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. 15Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”
