Praise and thanksgiving (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Romans 11:33-12:2)

Graham Brownlee, 21 November 2010
Part of the Prayer : Community with God in life series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

There is so much in the bible about praise and thanksgiving – which is all about the worth of God and goodness / wellbeing in life. Once again this is not about something apart from life, but in the midst of life. God takes and enjoys our praise and thanks as it brings together his coming way and our hopes. Such praise and thanksgiving is rooted in our experience and shapes our attitudes and thinking in major ways.

« Prayer from the depths What are our priorities in Life? "Be happy!" : from Matthew 5 v1-12 »

1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 (Listen)

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


Romans 11:33–12:2 (Listen)

33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

34   “For who has known the mind of the Lord,
    or who has been his counselor?”
35   “Or who has given a gift to him
    that he might be repaid?”

36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
