We Give Thanks to God—Since we heard of Your Love

Today (well, yesterday now) I delivered a sermon on Colossians 1:3,4 concerning our thanks to God and our love of the saints. It was the second sermon on this text as GNBC is working through the book of Colossians. The first part examined thankfulness in relation to the faith of others, that is the faith of those who trust in Jesus as the Christ. We examined three things about a believer's thanks and love.
  • Our love is to be directed toward the fellowship.
  • Our thanks is to be directed to God.
  • Our source is to be found in God.
Hopefully this will assist the body in continuing to cultivate the love for each other that is growing in our fellowship by helping us recognize the source of love and the object of love as well as the fact that it is to God that all thanks is ultimately due. Praise be to God, the author and profecter of our faith and love. Amen.
