Overflowing with Thankfulness

 

“Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith . . . and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7

 

An attitude of thanks is deeply rooted in our encounter and friendship with God, in the person of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t depend on external things or our life’s circumstances. Rather, it’s connected to our knowledge of and faith in God.

 

To put it simply, the better we know Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the more thankful we are. Our daily walk with Him helps us experience the true abundance of godly thankfulness.

 

Our heavenly Father, we thank You for the privilege of knowing You through Christ. Encourage us in our daily walk with You, strengthen our faith, and help us to be thankful. In Jesus, Amen.
