Thanksgiving is around the corner and most pastors have a need—real or imagined—to preach on Thanksgiving, thanksgiving, thankfulness, or another variation one of the Sundays bookending this revered holiday.
Knowing that it is 1) sometimes difficult to find a new approach to an old theme, and 2) your church has heard your entire cornucopia of Thanksgiving sermons, this outline is offered to help kick-start some thinking.
Or just to help those who may be running late. It happens.
If this helps you, feel free to use it. I have no idea whether it’s original with me or not. Apologies to Spurgeon or Wesley if they beat me to it.
Reasons to Be Thankful—Psalm 136
I. Give Thanks to God for His Person (v. 1-3)
II. Give Thanks to God for His Power (v. 4-9)
III. Give Thanks to God for His Purposes (v. 10-22)
IV. Give Thanks to God for His Provision (v. 23-26)
