Gratitude - A Christian State of Mind

Speaker: Pat Buttes | Category: Christian Living
Series: Topical

In Romans 1 Paul indicts humanity for its greatest crimes against God.  The chapter provides a powerful list of offenses including suppressing the truth about God, animal worship, destructive sexual deviant acts, inventors of evil, and depravity just to name a few.  But there is one offense that is mentioned that has always thrown me, it is for ingratitude in verse 21.  It would have been like Adolf Hitler if he would have lived, being tried at Nuremberg and after being indicted for the murder of 6,000,000 Jews the next offense listed would have been for not saying thank you.  Let me assure you that ingratitude has little do with manners and everything to do with one's deepest spiritual state.


Passages

Romans 1:21 (Listen)

21 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.

(ESV)
