Friday November 29, 2013 “Thanks for the Faith of the Church”

Colossians 1:3-6 “We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth;”
These verses from St. Paul’s letter to the Colossian Church could be personally addressed to our nation as a reminder of God graciously giving us the foundation of the Word of God.  We must be thankful for the faith of many people today and those in the past who have exercised their faith and have been a part of God making this great nation.
Paul’s mention of people worldwide that are bearing fruit because of the Gospel should bless our hearts for America has been the leader in sending the message through missionaries into all the world at great expense of resource and even human life.
Today let’s take time to express our gratitude to God for the Body of Christ that lives their faith in Jesus Christ because of hope rooted in the Word of God concerning heaven for all those who believe.
