“Thanks-living” | Colossians 3:12-17 Sermon

How can we properly give thanks, to the One who gave us everything? How can you possibly repay someone who saved your life? The best way to give thankfully to Christ is to live thankfully for Christ. During this season of Thanksgiving, let’s focus on the reason for Thanksliving.

We Americans love to be independent. Our Declaration of Independence tells us we have the divine right of “the pursuit of happiness”. But we really have the divine requirement of the pursuit of holiness. True happiness entails rejecting the ways of the wicked and accepting the way of the Waymaker — not living life according to our own selections, but according to God’s directions.

Ultimately, there are two ways to live life. We can live in a way contrary to God’s character or in a way conforming to God’s character. We can live life as directed, or live life as selected – according to God’s directions or according to our selections.
The Two Ways have two different destinations. The self-directed way of the wicked leads to instability and destruction. The divinely-directed way of the righteous leads to true bliss and (godly) prosperity.

When we haven’t eaten spiritually in a while, many of us become spiritually hangry. And when we hunger spiritually, we often seek to feed our souls food that is not healthy.  We need to crave the spiritual food Jesus speaks of in John 4:34 — doing the will of Him who sent us.

When some were doubting the resurrection of the dead, Paul reminds the members of the church in Corinth that he founded about the facts. Paul uses both subjective and objective evidence to address their doubts. And after considering the objective historical evidence that modern scholars of all stripes agree upon, the best explanation of the “minimal facts” is that Christ indeed was raised from the dead.

The religious leaders present consider Christ’s claim to forgive sin as blasphemy. But Jesus provides eye-opening evidence of His divine authority and of the prophesied Kingdom of God He inaugurated.

Just as Jesus healed the man from His physical paralysis and freed him from his mat, He can heal us from our spiritual paralysis and free us from our sin.
