Thanksgiving Sunday 2018

Today we especially want to encourage thanksgiving to God for all he has done for us at BAC. Today instead of asking someone “How are you?”, please ask: “What are you thankful for today?”

In Luke 17 Jesus had an encounter where 10 lepers were healed. Luke recalls that:
One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. Luke 17:15-16 (NIV)

In giving thanks, this person increased their joy by coming back to praise God and fall at Jesus feet in thanks. And although he was a Samaritan outcast, he is remembered for his great example! However Jesus had to ask: “Where are the other nine?”  Luke 17:17 (NIV). I pray that at BAC we can do better than 10% thankfulness!

On Tuesday night we thankfully celebrated the year that has been and all God has done through our church, even in hardships. We look forward to the next 12 months. I pray that God will invigorate you to give of your time, energy, money and prayers thankfully into the coming year.

Your Pastor,
