Thankful Worship

As Paul the Apostle instructed the Church regarding worship at the Third of Colossians, he enjoined both thankfulness and the giving of thanks. Though we may be enriched with necessary sustenance, the most important of all things received are what Paul described at the First of Ephesians as “all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” The First of James describes God as the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Though the same gift is not always good and perfect for everyone, James went on to say that we are begotten of God through His Word to become a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. That is a gift which is good and perfect for every one that receives it and which provides great cause for thankful worship.
