Grace Challenge Day 27
For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:15
Thanksgiving is contagious.
The more you express thanks, the more grace that is given causing more thanks to be given and so on. The ultimate result is the “giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.” And this is why we exist and this is how we find happiness.
1 Corinthians 10:31. Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
Romans 11:36. For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Ephesians 1:12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.
Psalm 16:11 You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
The Westminster Confession puts it this way:
Q: What is the chief end of man?
A: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever
If you want to fulfill your purpose (glorify God) and you want to be happy, give thanks.
