Excerpts of Pastor E.A Adeboye’s sermon at the 2018/2019 Crossover Service
Most of the time when we are doing any form of thanksgiving, we focus the attention on ourselves. For instance, we say, "I am grateful I am healed or I am grateful that I got a new job, etc.” However, in Luke 2:13-14, the angel teaches us that the focus of our thanksgiving should not be us but God. Thank God for being God.
Thank God, the Father; the greatest giver. In Genesis 2:7, we see that God, the Father is the giver of life. He formed the man out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breathe of life, and man became a living soul. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
