What does it mean to be thankful?
What does it mean to have gratitude?

This service today was our annual "What Am I Thankful For" as we all made our own lists of things, people, etc. that WE are thankful for in our daily lives.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 - (NASB)
18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

We pray that you will invite Jesus into your life and make Him Lord of your life.  If you need to pray about this with someone please call Pastor Harvey at 323-316-7131 and he will be glad to pray with you.

After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...

Psalm 100 (NASB)

1 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Serve the Lord with jubilation;
Come before Him with rejoicing.

3 Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
And His courtyards with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.

5 For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting
And His faithfulness is to all generations.

Thankfulness and Gratitude
Albert Faust

Here is the text - 
Luke 17:11-19 & Luke 17:11-14
[11] While He was on the way to Jerusalem, He was passing between Samaria and Galilee.

[12] As He entered a village, ten leprous men who stood at a distance met Him;

[13] and they raised their voices, saying, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!"

[14] When He saw them, He said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they were going, they were cleansed.

Luke 17:15-19
[15] Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice,

[16] and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan.

[17] Then Jesus answered and said, "Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine-where are they?

[18] Was no one found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner?"

[19] And He said to him, "Stand up and go; your faith has made you well."

Give Thanks
