How do we say THANK YOU?
• We say THANK YOU with our LOVE.
Luke 7:36-47 NLT
One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to have dinner with him, so Jesus went to
his home and sat down to eat. When a certain immoral woman from that city
heard he was eating there, she brought a beautiful alabaster jar filled with
expensive perfume. Then she knelt behind him at his feet, weeping. Her
tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept
kissing his feet and putting perfume on them. When the Pharisee who had
invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would
know what kind of woman is touching him. She’s a sinner!” Then Jesus
answered his thoughts. “Simon,” he said to the Pharisee, “I have something
to say to you.” “Go ahead, Teacher,” Simon replied. Then Jesus told him this
story: “A man loaned money to two people—500 pieces of silver[b]
to one and
50 pieces to the other. But neither of them could repay him, so he kindly
forgave them both, canceling their debts. Who do you suppose loved him
more after that?” Simon answered, “I suppose the one for whom he canceled
the larger debt.” “That’s right,” Jesus said. Then he turned to the woman and
said to Simon, “Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your
home, you didn’t offer me water to wash the dust from my feet, but she has
washed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You didn’t greet
me with a kiss, but from the time I first came in, she has not stopped kissing
my feet. You neglected the courtesy of olive oil to anoint my head, but she
has anointed my feet with rare perfume. I tell you, her sins—and they are
many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person
who is forgiven little shows only little love.”
How do we say THANK YOU?
• We say THANK YOU with our LIVES.
John 14:15 NIV
“If you love me, keep my commands.”
How do we say THANK YOU?

Isaiah 12:4-6 NIV
… “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the
nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the
LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of
Israel among you.”
Romans 8:31-39 NIV
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who
can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for
us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God
who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus
who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of
God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of
Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or
danger or sword? …No, in all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any
powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be
able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Psalm 150 NIV
Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty
heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing
greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the
harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the
strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with
resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise
the LORD.
