Acts of Thanksgiving

Acts of Thanksgiving


On Worship in Spirit and Truth, Dr. Demetrios Katos discusses the most important devotion of Christian Worship – Acts of Thanksgiving. With Thanksgiving we are encouraged to be thankful, but until we acknowledge that all our blessings are from God and for His glory, we remain focused upon our own needs rather than the needs of others.
