Saying “Thank You” (in the Age of Siri)
Sermon Series: October 21-November 25, 2018 (6 Weeks)
In the age of SIRI, ALEXA, and automated customer services, it is easy to get what you ask for; and without ever having to really say “Thank-You.” And yet, the Bible tells us that the key to intimacy with God is having a thankful heart for what He has provided; most importantly, the grace given to us through His Son Jesus Christ. This sermon series will explore the crucial and consistent theme of being thankful that runs throughout the Bible. You will see clearly that nothing is more important to living a life that is pleasing to God than being thankful for God’s wonderful blessings.
