Happy Thanksgiving! The text this week is Romans 1:21-23 where Paul talks about the sin of thanklessness. We’ll also explore the blessing of thankfulness! The worship theme is, of course, giving thanks, and the visuals will be Thanksgiving meals.

1 Chronicles 16:8-15 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! 9Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! 10Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice! 11Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! 12Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles and the judgments he uttered, 13O offspring of Israel his servant, children of Jacob, his chosen ones! 14He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth. 15Remember his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
1 Chronicles 16:35-36 Say also: “Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather and deliver us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. 36Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting!” Then all the people said, “Amen!” and praised the Lord.

Scripture for Meditation
Romans 1:18-23 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
