LESSON INTRODUCTION: To Be grateful means to express one’s thankfulness, showing appreciation to someone whom we have benefited from. This is done to fellow human beings; and God who is our maker, for all He has done, all He is doing and what He will still do for us. He (God) even wants this from us according to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. Therefore, be grateful to Him for your life.


A. LESSON AIM: To encourage members to have a heart of gratitude.

B. TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. Give reasons why we should be grateful.
ii. Know what we can be grateful for.

i. Being grateful brings answers to prayers and strength to go through life.

ii. Gratitude to God brings caring for the humble and resistance to the proud.
iii. Gratitude brings God’s deliverance from dangers and unleashing of His anger.
iv. Gratitude makes God work out His plans for His children.

D. TEACHING METHOD: The leader should use the lecture method while giving room for contributions from the members.

E. TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time, and use the suggested time schedule.


The Bible says, “In everything give thanks….” 1 Thessalonians 5:18, and also the book of Philippians 4:4 teaches us to rejoice in the Lord always because a grateful heart is a joyous heart. Therefore, being grateful to God is needful for you as a true child of God.


There are so many things which are the blessings of God upon our lives, things seen and unseen. Though these good deeds of God are uncountable the following are some of them.

  1. For whom God is to you and His unqualified mercy. Psalms 107:1
  2. For His unfailing love that is without limit. 1 Corinthians 16:34, 1 John 4:8
  3. For His provisions at all times. Philippians 4:19
  4. For the assurance of safety. Psalms 91:5-79

SUMMARY: Being grateful will make your journey in life meaningful.

CONCLUSION: If not because the Lord was on our side, we would not have been alive till today, because we got no power nor means of protection for our lives other than the Lord Himself who had been our shelter, and our help in times of need. We should therefore ensure that we are thankful to Him in order to gain more of His attention of blessings, provisions, protection etc. for our lives. So, BE GRATEFUL UNTO GOD.


  1. Thank Him for His endless goodness and mercies.
  2. Father, help me to be thankful and grateful with an upright heart as I continually benefit from Your unwavering faithfulness.
  3. Pray for the rapid growth of RCCG spiritually, materially and numerically.
  4. Pray for Daddy G.O and his entire family.
  5. Your personal prayer request.


MONDAY: Those Who are grateful to God are already blessed. Psalms 119:2.

TUESDAY: Bless the Lord and be confident in His promises. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.



WEDNESDAY: God’s plan for a blessing is already in place, therefore be grateful! Ephesians 1:3.

THURSDAY: Don’t let what you see confuse you about God’s promises. 2 Corinthians 4:18.

FRIDAY: Darkness cannot comprehend His light, He is ever able. John 1:5.

SATURDAY: Jesus died for you, to reconcile you to God: That is grace. John 3:16.

SUNDAY: His word says GOODNESS and MERCIES shall follow you all the days of your life. Psalms 23:6.
