Romans 1:21, Ephesians 5:20
They Did Not Give Him Thanks
Never take your eyes off the two kings of the Bible:
- Jesus is King.
- Context is king.
Not giving God thanks is a defining characteristic of those who need a Savior.
Giving Thanks Always and For Everything
One of the defining marks of being filled with the Spirit of God is that you give thanks to God.
Being grateful for something and giving thanks for it are two distinct things.
“Nothing befalls you, good or evil, but there is a providence of [God] in that thing.” (Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, p.61)
