Pastor Adeboye sermon on thanksgiving and praise

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his court with praise: be thank unto him,

bless his name” (Ps. 100:4)

Read Psalm 118:1-10

Some year ago, I heard a true story of man who was jailed in America because a woman alleged he raped her. Four years into his jail term, the woman confessed she lied against the man. So the case was re-opened in court. The lawyer of the plaintiff argued that if she lied the first time, what was the assurance that she was not lying this time around. So they returned the man to continue his jail term for a crime he did not commit. Today, there are many in the prison who knows nothing about the crime for which they are imprison. You shall not suffer for what you know nothing about in Jesus Name.

I went to pray for patients in the cancer ward of a hospital one day. I saw a boy who had cancer of the eye. One of his eye balls had become almost as large as half of his head. I also saw a woman with cancer of the breast. One breast had become almost as large as her body. Then I saw one of the female cancer patients singing praises to God and I was surprised. She said she was singing because she knew she was going to die soon and would be going to Heaven. If you die now, where are you going? Some year ago I went to Egypt and the pastor I went to see told me he was going to a place they call the City of the Dead.

There were several graves of those who die during the Second World War. On each grave was a little house built with cellophane, and there lived many who had no money to pay for an accommodation. Once a year, when the relatives of the dead want to visit the graves of their loves ones, these grave residents would move out in the morning and return by evening when those relatives would have left. No matter how had your situation may be financially, you are not living in a grave yard like these ones. This call for thanksgiving. If the cancer patient on her way to death could praise God, what about you?

You have so many reasons to thank God. Imagine your life: good health, family, job or business, daily provision of food, shelter over your head, education qualification, and ministry, God’s grace on your life, God’s bright plan for your future, heavenly reward and eternity in Heaven.

Give God thanks
