THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Thanksgiving is not just a holiday. It is not just a day off from work. In fact, it is interesting that the holiday was established in past by Presidents for the particular purpose of offering thanks to God for all that He has given to us. The idea of being thankful is integral to the life of a Christian. One cannot be a Christian without understanding all that God has done for him. A host of scriptures tells us that prayer should be accompanied by thanksgiving – for instance Philippians 4:6 and Colossians 4:2. God does not want us to thank Him only because He commands us to do so. The grace of God demands it, 2 Corinthians 4:15. He has done so much for us. How could we not be thankful. That there are those who do not acknowledge the blessings of God is not surprising, Romans 1:21. That there are those who do not thank God when He clearly has blessed them is not surprising, Luke 17:11ff. But we who are of the truth know that God has given us all we have, James 1:17. He has communicated to us the means of forgiveness of sins and has even provided the sacrifice whereby we may be reconciled to Him. What more could we ask for? Paul tells us to pray without ceasing, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, and to pray with Thanksgiving, Philippians 4:6. We should, therefore be thankful without ceasing. And not just on one day of the year or even on Sundays as we remember the sacrifice of Jesus through the Lord’s Supper, but every day.

If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me.

One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18.

If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Scott Long
