Thanks Be To God!
1st Corinthians 15:56-57   The sting of death is sin, the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 Thankfulness Should Be Constant
Ephesians 5:20 …always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thankfulness Is God’s Will For Us
1st Thessalonians 5:18 …give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Learn How To Be Thankful In All Of Life’s Circumstances
1st Thessalonians 5:18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Thankfulness Creates An Environment Conducive to Revival
1st Timothy 2:1-4  I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone– for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, Who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Thankfulness Consecrates Our Daily Bread
1st Timothy 4:1-5  The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. 

Thanksgiving Is The Focus of Eternal Praise
Revelation 4:9-11  Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor & thanks to Him who sits on the throne & Who lives for ever & ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him Who sits on the throne, & worship Him Who lives for ever & ever. They lay their crowns before the throne & say: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor & power, for You created all things, & by Your will they were created & have their being!”

Thankfulness In All Things Drives Away Anxiety
Philippians 4:6-7  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Prayer Is Tempered With Thanksgiving
Colossians 4:2  Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;

Thanklessness Will Mark The End Times
2nd Timothy 3:1-4  In the last days perilous times will come: People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…

Psalm 100:1-5
Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, His truth endures to all generations.
