    FINAL THOUGHT: Money cant buy you friends byour enemies treat you better.


    Before America existed as a nation, the hardysouls who persevered to found this great countrymade the effort to thank God Almighty for Hisprovision and grace. Giving thanks in the earlysettlements across this new world was a spontaneousact by grateful people. They experienced a life sorugged, that without the providence of God they

    would have surely not survived. They were gratefulfor Gods favor and blessing.

    Today, Thanksgiving Day has become atradition, which like other traditions, has developed,grown, and transitioned from being a simple spiritualact of acknowledging Gods blessings, to a nationalevent of unbridled proportions. This day is meant tobe a time to stop, take notice of our blessings, andacknowledge God with a grateful heart. Let us notforget, there have been Thanksgivings in the past that

    were very trying and somber, days of prayer andfasting.

    As Godly people, let us tell the whole worldthat we thank Almighty God for His provident grace.The Bible says: Give thanks to the LORD andproclaim his greatness. Let the whole world knowwhat he has done (I Chronicles 16:8 NLT).

    May we never grow tired of telling the wholeworld about the Lord and what He means to our lives.

    In His Service,



    Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)18 Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given t o me. 19 Therefore go and madisciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching themobey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

    Just a couple of thoughts:

    Jesus establishes His authority and then issues a command. The command has three parts.

    1. Go and show people how to follow me2. When they are ready to commit, immerse them into service to Father, Son and Spirit3. Teach them to do everything I have commanded

    He then encourages them that they dont have to do this alone, that He will be with them.

    The nature of this commission is cyclical, meaning that as the apostles made disciples, those would in turn then follow the samplan to show what it means to follow Jesus, baptize new disciples and send them out. The success of this mission depends you and I continuing the cycle. Are we going and showing? Are we baptizing? Are we calling others into service to continue t

    cycle and take the world for Jesus?
