Study Guide Bible Lesson 13: Thanksgiving
Memory Verse: Hebrews 13:15 Therefore through him let us continually offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of the lips that confess his name.
- Thanksgiving is important because it reflects a relationship with God, a reliance on God, and rest in God.
- God’s chosen people in the Old Testament gave Him thank offerings to voluntarily show their gratitude for His person, power, and to celebrate with friends and family what the Lord had done.
- Jesus offered Himself as one sacrifice for all sins.
- Through Jesus, believers are able to fellowship and have a relationship with God.
- Many of the psalms express thanksgiving to God.
- A psalm is a poem or praise to God that is said or sung.
- A psalmist is an author or writer of psalms.
- Christians are to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
- Jonah showed faith while still in the belly of the fish by declaring that God had already answered him.
- It is possible to give thanks during a hard situation. This is illustrated in Jonah’s story – while Jonah was still in the belly of the great fish, in faith he offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to God. The same illustration can be found in Hannah’s story – Hannah cried out to God in honesty during a difficult time and worshiped Him. She was thankful to God for His promise of a son, even though the promise was not yet fulfilled.
- In faith and thanksgiving Hannah dedicated her son, Samuel, to the Lord to serve under Eli.
- Christians should come before the Lord with prayers of thanksgiving in all circumstances, even in difficult trials.
- The Bible says to give thanks in every situation since this is God’s will (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
- A proper attitude during trials is to rejoice in them because they produce patience and completeness. It is also commanded by God.
- The giving of thanks during difficult situations, despite conflicting emotions, is a sign of mature faith in God. Rejoicing or thankfulness is more a choice than an emotion.
