LUKE 17:11-19

“HEART OF THANKSGIVING”

INTRODUCTION:

- WHILE WE SET ASIDE A SPECIAL DAY TO CORPORATELY SAY AND BE THANKFUL.

-  WHEN IT COMES TO THE THINGS OF GOD EVERYTHING OUGHT TO BE DONE  WITH THE         HEART AND IN THE SPIRIT OF THANKSGIVING.

- IF THANKSGIVING IS NOT IN OUR HEARTS THEN

                        - WE WILL BE AS GUILTY OF THANKLESSNESS AS THE NINE LEPERS

                        - THAT DID NOT REGARD JESUS.

-  HOW DO WE KEEP FROM MAKING THIS SAME MISTAKE?

-  HOW DO WE DEVELOP A   HEART OF THANKSGIVING?

BODY:

PT.1 DON’T CONFUSE THANKSGIVING

                        - THE NINE THOUGHT THEY FULFILLED GRATITUDE BUT THEY CONFUSED

PT.1a THANKSGIVING WITH REVERENCE (V.12)

            REVERENCE -

                        - THEY FOLLOWED THE CUSTOM AS WELL AS REVERENCE FOR GOD

PT1b THANKSGIVING WITH RECOGNITION

                        - THEY RECOGNIZED THE PERSON AND POSITION OF JESUS

                                    - IT WAS A LAME CONFESSION OF FAITH

                        - CONFESSION AND RECOGNITION IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH                    THANKSGIVING

IF WE ARE TO HAVE A HEART OF THANKSGIVING WE MUST NOT CONFUSE THANKSGIVING WITH REVERENCE OR RECOGNITION

PT.2 DON’T REFUSE THANKSGIVING

WHAT DOES GRATITUDE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD LOOL LIKE?

PT.2a BEGINS WITH PERCEPTION ( HE SAW… v.14)

             - WE WILL HAVE A HEART OF THANKSGIVING WHEN WE PRECEIVE OUR BLESSING

NOT ONLY DOES THANKSGIVING BEGIN WITH PERCEPTION

PT.2b GROWS WITH PROCLAIMATION (v.15)

                        - PROCLAIMATION MUST MOVE FROM INWARD RECOGNITION

                        - AND MUST BECOME OUTWARD REPRESENTATION

NOT ONLY DOES THANKSGIVING BEGIN WITH PERCEPTION; GROW WITH PROCLAIMATION

PT.2c THANKSGIVING ENDS WITH PROSTRATION (v.16)

                        - GENUINE THANKSGIVING ALWAYS ACCOMPANIES WORSHIP

                        - THANKSGIVING IS THE KEYSTONE TO PRAISE

                        - THANKSGIVING IS PARAMOUNT IN WORSHIP

CONCLUSION

- A HEART OF THANKSGIVING PRODUCES A LIFE OF THANKSGIVING

- A LIFE OF THANKSGIVING PRODUCES A HOUSE OF THANKSGIVING

- A HOUSE OF THANKSGIVING PRODUCES THE COMPLETE BLESSING OF THE LORD
