Some thoughts from the Thanksgiving Day sermon

In the sermon this morning, our pastor expounded on Psalm 95. Verses 6 and 7a of that psalm say:

O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand . .

After listing many of the good gifts of this life for which people are thankful, he reminded us that we should be most thankful for God Himself. The Lord, Yahweh, is our Savior from our sins, who provides for us a way of escape from the the deserved suffering of His wrath against all wickedness. He is our Good Shepherd. Christ says of Himself in John 10:11:

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
