πŸ‘‘ Thanksgiving

God’s verdict upon the pagan world is that β€œthey are without excuse, because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful…” (Rom.Β 1:20,21).

The Psalmist, on the other hand, declares:

β€œIT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD, AND TO SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH:

β€œTO SHOW FORTH THY LOVINGKINDNESS IN THE MORNING. AND THY FAITHFULNESS EVERY NIGHT” (Psa. 92:1,2).

Believers today have even more to be thankful for than did the Psalmist, for we can rejoice in what God has done for us through Christ and His redeeming work. Thus Paul, by divine inspiration, speaks of…

β€œGIVING THANKS UNTO THE FATHER, WHO HATH MADE US MEET [FIT] TO BE PARTAKERS OF THE INHERITANCE OF THE SAINTS IN LIGHT:

β€œWHO HATH DELIVERED US FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS, AND HATH TRANSLATED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON” (Col.Β 1:12,13).

It is because of this β€œdeliverance” that the humblest believer can cry with Paul: β€œThanks be unto God, who always causeth us to triumph in Christ!” (II Cor.Β 2:14) and β€œThanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” (I Cor.Β 15:57). How appropriate, then, are the following exhortations:

β€œIn everything give thanks” (I Thes.Β 5:18) and β€œBy [Christ], therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise… giving thanks to His name” (Heb.Β 13:15).

β€œFor all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God” (II Cor.Β 4:15).

Most of all, β€œTHANKS BE UNTO GOD FOR HIS UNSPEAKABLE GIFT,” our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! (II Cor.Β 9:15). source

Bible Verse for 8/10/20

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. — Luke 12:6-7
