The final message in a sermon series entitled ‘Common Threads of a Close Walk’. This message is called The Grateful One and is based primarily on Luke 7:36-50. In these verses we see an amazing display of gratitude from a sinful woman whom the Lord chose to set free from bondage. She had experienced the mercy and grace of God and wasn’t going to let anything get in the way of her showing her thankfulness. We see a beautiful act of love, followed by a life of faithful devotion. This story begs each of us to ask a thoughtful question of ourselves: how thankful are we for what God has done in our lives and how do we show our gratitude?
