Real Thankfulness

60 pages53 minutes


Simeon Ashe (d. 1662) was a puritan minister of the Gospel and a member of the Westminster Assembly. Samuel Rutherford described him as, “gracious and zealous."

How thankful are you to God? Here is the biblical test to your thankfulness: if you are thankful, how well do you keep God’s commandments? Ashe will teach you that giving thanks to God is not only about “lip-service” but about “doing.” He works from Psalm 105:45, “That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.” He explains real thankfulness in 6 parts. He shows that man’s regular observation of all God’s commandments is the end of all God’s glorious administrations for man’s comfort. Without true obedience before God, the Christian cannot really be thankful to God for who he is and what he has done in Christ Jesus.
