    Good lepers are those who are healed and never forget the disease they once had. They remember how good clean feels. Bad lepers, on the other hand, are those who are healed and go on acting as if they never had the disease. This Thanksgiving sermon encourages us to model our lives after the leper who returned to give thanks.
  • H. Mark Abbott
    (October 2008)
    In this sermon, which focuses on God's provision of manna for his people, Thanksgiving is our response to grace. Thanksgiving humbly acknowledges: "God how good You are to me!" Thanksgiving is responding to God's grace even in the midst of trouble. "In everything," Paul wrote, "give thanks." Not necessarily for everything, but in every situation, give thanks for who God is.

    Real thanksgiving, biblical thanksgiving, according to this sermon, is greater and deeper than that feeling we get when everything is going our way. It is based not on our circumstances, but on God’s sufficiency; not on our production, but on God’s provision; not on our performance, but on God’s providence.

    (November 2006)
    It seems that at Thanksgiving we thank everyone, and so we should. According to this Thanksgiving sermon, we are right to thank the people that have contributed to our lives, we should consider our forefathers, and we should praise our family and friends. But let’s not forget God. He is the source of all blessings.

    (March 2006)
    As an introduction to a series on Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, this Thanksgiving sermon focuses on the importance of giving thanks in our lives. First, we are privileged to give thanks for the way God has called us into relationship with himself and with each other. Second, we are privileged to give thanks for five specific God-given gifts.
  • Michael A. Milton
    (November 2005)
    Thanksgiving is the overflow of our hearts when we come to see our desperate need and God's gracious deliverance. In this Thanksgiving sermon we learn three lessons from Namaan, whose thankgiving was a response to God's grace, a confession of God's glory, and a rejoicing in God rather than a repaying of him.
  • Michael Milton
    (November 2004)
    Thanksgiving season can be a tense time for us as we gather with our families. We come to the Thanksgiving table weighed down with the bad memories, disappointments and unmet needs that often plague family life. This Thankgiving sermon offers the perfect prescription for peace this holiday season based on Psalm 23.

    Thanksgiving is more than a holiday that falls on the fourth Thursday of every November. It is meant to be a way of life for a child of God! This Thanksgiving sermon uses the language of technology to highlight three operating principles of thanksgiving and their practical applications.

    Thankfulness is more than words. According to this Thanksgiving sermon, it is a positive mental attitude, focused on God and grateful for all the benefits that are ours as believers. It is a lifestyle rooted in the disposition of our hearts! Matthew Henry said 'Thanksgiving is good but thanks-living is better.'
