10 Humbling Quotes on Thankfulness

Thankfulness QuotesThanksgiving is a time to get together with our closest friends and family, reflect on our blessings, and enjoy conversation over a delicious communal meal. It’s a time to thank God for every little thing he’s given us—and, hopefully, a time to remember how important it is to be thankful year-round.

Here are 10 quotes that remind us of the importance of giving thanks:

1. “If anyone would tell you the shortest, surest way to all happiness and all perfection, he must tell you to make a rule to yourself to thank and praise God for everything that happens to you.” —William Law, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life

2. “The Christian’s life should be one of thankfulness to God.” —Charles Spurgeon, The Treasury of David, vol. 5

3. “We do not always know what is right. It is not always clear whether or not we should move. What we should say is not known in every situation. But there is one word which should never be far from our lips. It is ‘thanks’ (1 Thess. 5:18).” —Wayne Detzler, Living Words in Philippians

4. “Gratitude has a big job to do in us and our hearts. It is one of the chief ways that God infuses joy and resilience into the daily struggle of life.” —Nancy Leigh DeMoss, The Quiet Place

5. “It’s hard to give thanks for the consequences of evil. Gratitude in bad circumstances goes counter to our natural inclinations. But we are told to give thanks under every circumstance of life (Eph. 5:20).” —Al Detter, Nelson’s Annual Preacher’s Sourcebook

6. “The verbal utterances concerning Thanksgiving Day are mostly focused on visiting friends and loved ones, and of course, eating a bountiful turkey dinner. Yet without the biblical precedent of God’s people giving thanks, along with the example of the Pilgrims, we would not have this noteworthy holiday.” —Alvin J. Schmidt, How Christianity Changed the World

7. “Truly, we have much to thank God for, but if we would be thankful, we must set our hearts to do it with a will. We grumble and complain without thought, but we must think to give thanks.” —Samuel Logan Brengle, Take Time to be Holy

8. “Don’t complain when you’re in bad circumstances; cultivate a heart of thankfulness instead. If you’re not a thankful person, it’s because you think you deserve better circumstances than those you currently have. But if you got what you deserved, you’d be in hell. That goes for all of us. So be thankful for whatever God gives you. That will take all the sourness out of your life.” —John MacArthur, The Master’s Plan for the Church

9. “Thanklessness is a terrible disregard of God’s goodness.” —Lynn Garder, What the Bible Says about Suffering

10. “As we walk by the seashore, gaze in wonder at the stars, or smell the fragrance of a flower, we are to sense God speaking to us through His creation. And, seeing Him, we are to worship and give thanks.” —Larry Richards, The 365-Day Devotional Commentary

Spend today thanking God, but don’t let it stop there. Thanksgiving is more than just a holiday; it’s an ongoing state of praise and thankfulness for the many blessings in our lives.

Shining a Light on God’s Glory

the-glory-of-god-a-biblical-theologyToday’s guest post is from Philippe Paul-Luc Viguier, author of The Glory of God: A Biblical Theology and college pastor at Lake Hills Community Church in Castaic, California.

Can God’s glory be understood?

God’s glory is without doubt one of the most important concepts in the Bible. From creation to new creation, it saturates the pages of both testaments. Glory language is also commonly used in Jewish and Christian theological and devotional discussions.

The Glory of God: A Biblical Theology shows that God’s glory is not a distant, confusing, and esoteric reality; it is approachable, knowable, and applicable, especially through the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Studying God’s glory

This book provides a biblical theology of glory, beginning with a study of key biblical terms. It first looks at the main synonyms of “glory” in Hebrew; then it goes on to examine kabod, the main term used for God’s glory in the Old Testament, and doxa, the principal term used in the New Testament. Following the study of biblical terms, it turns to the extrabiblical definition of Shekinah, which proves to be an unfitting synonym for kabod.

The book then addresses two of Scripture’s most comprehensive passages in relation to glory: Exodus 33:12–34:35 and John 1:1–18. These chapters draw on eight aspects of glory: God’s kingly glory, God’s beaming glory, God’s essential glory, God’s revelatory glory, God’s praiseworthy glory, God’s messianic glory, God’s participatory glory, and God’s eschatological glory.

This book is ideal for anyone who wants to know more about what glory means in the Bible—and what it means for believers today. Pre-order it now and get the special Pre-Pub price!

Why NAMB Is Equipping Church Planters with Logos and Proclaim

namb-send-network-logos-350x200Church planters need a library that’s deep enough for preparing sermons, yet compact enough to bring with them wherever they go.

While their church is new and growing, many planters are holding service in temporary spaces, so they just don’t have the shelf space for hundreds of books. They’re also facing a wide variety of commitments on a tight schedule. They need more than just a library—they need a research assistant.

“Church planters are some of the most amazing people I know. With full schedules and modest finances, dedicating resources and shelf-space to a library of books and commentaries is hard for many to do.” —Aaron Linne, Logos’ director of church products

That’s why the North American Mission Board (NAMB) is giving each of its church planters a Logos 5 Silver base package and a six-month license to Proclaim. They’re giving all these pastors the best tools and resources to disciple their churches.

“This will be a great step in helping our church planters go deeper as they explore Scripture for their own spiritual growth and as they lead members of their congregations to grow deeper in their faith.” —Micah Millican, NAMB’s director of church planter relations

Equip your organization with the best tools for Bible study

We’ve been expanding our bulk-purchasing options for ministries—now churches, colleges, and ministry groups can make cost-effective Bible study tools available for entire organizations at once. If you’d like to set up your whole faculty, seminary, congregation, or other organization with Logos 5, Proclaim, or both, now you can!
