Being Thankful

1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” How can we give thanks for all circumstances, especially the painful ones? Notice this passage does not say give thanks FOR all circumstances. It says give thanks IN all circumstances. What a difference one word makes!

LUKE | A Prophet is Promised

Text: Luke 1:5–25. Much of history is written about Kings and Generals, the Wealthy and the Mighty, the Rich and Powerful of the World. But in this account we see God is not working through Caesars or Herods but through a humble elderly couple in the far reaches of the Roman Empire. Four hundred years of silence is broken by a message from the Angel Gabriel. | AUDIO | TEXT PDF
