Contagious Thanksgiving

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.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes.

What is the Church?

I miss going to church on Sunday. Our church has decided to not meet during COVID-19. We are taking what we consider to be the safe, love your neighbor approach. Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
