Fighting the Sin of Ingratitude

Sun, Nov 21, 2021
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. - Romans 1:21 (ESV) Ingratitude can be sad and hurtful. When you do something for someone and it is never acknowledged, it can be so hard. It fractures friendships. When people are ungrateful, it can sometimes seem that they act like they deserve what they have received. It seems to be a lack of character. But have you considered it isn’t just a flaw but actually a sin? In Romans 1 we often point the sins that are blatant and ‘icky’ in our perspective. But we glide by the truth that one of the sins that God’s judgment falls on is - ingratitude. Men and women in our fallen state fail to acknowledge the one who created them. This lack shows our failure to understand our real place as creature beings. This week we want to begin a season of thankfulness. We will spend time together singing songs, hearing testimonies, reading the word, and taking communion to acknowledge and praise our creator for His kindness and grace, not only as our creator but our redeemer.
