Give thanks

16 Jan

170116Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus, for in every way you have been enriched in him, in speech and knowledge of every kind—just as the testimony of Christ has been strengthened among you—so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:1-9, NRSV)

I give thanks for you because of the grace you have received from God. That you are not lacking in anything.

He will give you strength and keep you until the end so that you are blameless on the day of the Lord. God has said He will do this and He will. And for this I am thankful.

Oh if we were like Paul! Confident in the promises God has made us, and giving thanks for those things. Even when we can not see them. Even when it seems these things will not happen.

Give thanks for the promises of God and live in the confidence that the God will finish what He has begun.
