Saturday 11/24/13 Pastor Ken sermon Thanksgiving Philippians 1:3-6
===============================================================

In verse 3 we see that:

1. Thanksgiving is Personal :
We are each thankful for different things. It is personal because each of us have different things and different reasons to be thankful.

2) Thanksgiving is Targeted:
We are thankful for specific things. We are thankful for God and to God, the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. We thank God not the government. Target is God.

3) Thanksgiving is Relational:
We should give thanksgiving for our brothers and sister. Remember folk and pray for them. Remember them and keep them in our memory. Remember the people in church today. They are your brothers and sisters so pray for them. Pray for all members of other churches too. Thank God for them all. Thank God for people that we like the least, our enemies. Remember them all, pray for them and say thank you for them all.

In verse 4 we see the:

Actions Related to Thanksgiving

1) Thanksgiving is to be done always.
It doesn’t stop. It is not just praying for people. We should have care and concern for theses people, our brothers and sisters. Have some emotion for their plight and be emotional involved whether it is joy, praise or sorrow. Emotion is okay to have with prayer.

2) Pray to God: Speaking to God for others, this is giving thanksgiving.

3) Thanksgiving is Relational:
We pray for people we do and don’t have relationships with. Our praying for people is a relational action.

4) We Must Be a Participant in the Gospel:
Believe the gospel and walk in it. Persevere in the gospel, in the faith and believe in Jesus Christ. We are kept and preserved by God. He is doing a work for us and in us.

In verse six we learn:

Being Confident of This---God……

1) Began a good work in us……
2) Perfect - - He will perfect the work in us……
3) Finish the good work in us….God finishes the good work in us and will make us perfect in Christ Jesus on the day of his coming back.

*** Perfect = Mature, complete, whole, accomplishes the goal. When we set a goal and complete it. Complete it---get perfect, whole. God has a purpose for each of us. We are saved, being saved, truly saved, whole and complete.
Achieve the goal- perfect.

In verse six we see:

“Until the Day of Christ Jesus”

On this day we will be complete. Each of us are being prepared to be a present unto God. Jesus said He was preparing a place for us in his father’s house. He began a good work in us and He will finish this good work.

AMEN
