Luke 17

Bro Ernesto Facun Jr.

"Remember to say Thank You!"

“Ungrateful people expect, even demand, good things with no gratitude in return. However, grateful men and women are humbled and give God the glory for His blessings. Those who least expect the Lord's generous love are the most grateful people.”

We might be asking ourselves these questions.

• When will be this pandemic end?

• What would the world look like after pandemic?

Many of us, if not all of us, are looking forward to the end of this pandemic (to have rest) so that we can resume our normal routines.

Bro. Ernesto emphasized the need of seeking the true REST found in our Lord.

Mark 6:31 - “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.

Our Lord Jesus is extending a special REST to his disciple after a long day of preaching. They were GRATEFUL for the fruitful outcome of their preaching. They only saw the result of their preaching, not the obstacles and hardships they faced.

Why this subject (Be Grateful) important?

Being grateful allows us to focus on the things we do have rather than the things we don't.

Bro. Ernesto was moved to tears as he shared his story of how grateful he is to God for giving him a chance to live. Bro. Ernesto was sick for about three weeks, isolating himself and enabling him to ponder about and reflect on God's word.
