Don't Let Circumstances Change Your View of God

Don't Let Circumstances Change Your View of God
"The beginning of man's rebellion against God was, and is, the lack of a thankful heart." --Francis Shaeffer 

A three verb explanation of Christian life: Rejoice! Pray! Thank! 
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)  

1. "Rejoice always” 
Not "be happy always" because happiness depends on circumstances while joy depends on God. 

2. "Pray continually" 
Not necessarily with words but with conscious and unconscious dependence on God. 

3. "Give thanks in all circumstances" 
Not give thanks for all circumstances, but in all circumstances. 

Why do we do these three? 

Because "this is God’s will for [us] in Christ Jesus." 

Rejoice! Pray! Thank! 

Never let your circumstances change your view of God. Let God change your view of your circumstances.
