Greetings in Christ! Happy Thanksgiving!
How many times do you think the Bible uses some form of the word “thanksgiving?” The different forms are:
Thank Thank-offerings Thankful
Thanks Thankfulness Thanksgiving
How many times? Is this important to God? Ready? 137 times!
Yes, we counted! You can learn a lot about God, and people who love God, from all these verses. In 2 Corinthians 9:10-11, the Apostle Paul uses the same words Jesus used for reaching lost people: “seeds” and “harvest.”
“And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and will produce a rich harvest from your generosity. He will always make you rich enough to be generous at all times, so that many will thank God for your gifts….”
What do you thank God for this Thanksgiving?
We at Church Doctor Ministries thank God for:
- Your prayers
- Your friendship
- Your financial support
Our names are on the new breakthrough book Who Broke My Church? 7 Proven Strategies for Renewal and Revival, based on 15 years of research and 35 years of service, helping Christians and churches become more effective for reaching lost people, making disciples, and growing their congregations.
However, if there was room, the names of every prayer partner and every donor would be on that book. How great it is to invest in something that is multiplied thousands of times and will impact many churches!
Thank you for your support. Together, we work toward the harvest. Join us this Thanksgiving by thanking God for using all of us to reach lost people, through effective churches. Absolutely: Happy Thanksgiving! A generous God grows people who grow the Kingdom!
