This is the extra post about thankfulness I wanted to add. :)
I'm thankful for the Saviour, who has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. I'm thankful for the One who died, who's the image of the invisible God. I'm thankful for the Creator, who made all things that are in heaven, and in the earth, whether things invisible or visible. I'm thankful for Christ, who was before all things and by him all thing consist. I'm thankful for the Cornerstone, who is the head of the body, the church, the beginning. I'm thankful for Jesus, who made peace through the blood of the cross, and reconciled all things unto himself. Jesus came to earth to die on the cross for all our sins, and offers eternal life to anyone who believes the gospel. (Romans 10:9 states the gospel clearly. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. ~Rom. 10:9)
The paragraph above came from Colossians 1:12-20
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Filled with all the fulness of God, and hoping you enjoyed this post,
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. ~Ephesians 3:19
