Made To Be Grateful

Preacher:
Passage: 2 Corinthians 4:7-15

Is it okay to talk about being grateful when it isn’t Thanksgiving Day? We are in the “Thanksgiving season” in the sense that we are just past the halfway point between the Canadian and American Thanksgiving Days. So we should be okay to talk about gratitude, right? That’s a bit foolish, of course, because it is never the wrong time to talk about being grateful people. Everyone has things they should be grateful for year round, but for those of us who are followers of Christ, there is just so much more for us to consider.

So this weekend, as we continue to lock down what it means to be a 5G Christian in our series called Made for This, we will be in 2 Corinthians 4:7-15 to see that we are “Made To Be Grateful.” Be sure to catch up on any messages you have missed along the way in this five-part series (this weekend is message #4).

I am a grateful Christian when...

• I know my place before God (v. 7)

• I don’t let my circumstances get me down (v. 8-12)

• I anticipate being resurrected with Jesus (v. 13-14)

• I see gratitude increasing in those around me (v. 15)
