Thanksgiving: Religious Expressions of Cheer and Joy

Dear Saints,

In preparation for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Service, please meditate on this quote by Charles Hodge:

“Foolish talking and jesting are not the ways in which Christian cheerfulness should express itself, but rather “giving of thanks”  (Eph. 5:4). Religion is the source of joy and gladness, but its joy is expressed in a religious way, in thanksgiving and praise.”

This religious focus is a great reason to get together and praise the Lord of the Harvest tomorrow before we enjoy all the food and fellowship that He has provided for us.  May we express our gratitude to Christ the Lord together with Him in worship.

For Christ and His Kingdom,

Pastor Grant
