Abounding Thanksgiving (7/28/2019)
First in a series on keeping our eye on the goal (2 Corinthians 4:15-18)
“For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 4:15).
Having already declared that his life is not his own, the Apostle Paul has no regrets that he has sacrificed his life in sharing the gospel and that he has endured many difficulties in doing so. It is all for the sake of those who came to Jesus.
In sharing the grace of God through obedient faith in Jesus, Paul has made it possible for many to abound in their thankfulness to God for all of the spiritual blessings they have received. Such thanksgiving on the part of believers brings glory to God.
Attitude is the key message coming from this great example the apostle sets for us. May our attitude be as positive and our thanksgiving as abounding as we contemplate the abundant spiritual blessings we have as Christians.
