The Blessings of Sacrificial Thanksgiving - Part 1

TEXT: 1 Chro. 21:22-26

INTRODUCTION: The God that created the heavens and earth never lacks anything. Whenever he asks for anything from us, he has already set up a plan to lift us to another level, but as you know that in every educational system, it takes an examination to be promoted to another class. It is true that in our earthly school, we may be promoted without examination, but in the school of God, there is always a price to pay to be taken to another higher level. Gen. 22:1-18.
