Giving thanks to God

Was feeling Thankful this evening and found some nice verses.  My prayer today is a thank you to God, for the opportunity to learn about his grace, love and forgiveness.

1 Corinthians 1:4

Thanksgiving ] I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 1:3-5 (in Context) 1 Corinthians 1 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

2 Corinthians 4:15

All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

2 Thessalonians 1:3

Thanksgiving and Prayer ] We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.
2 Thessalonians 1:2-4 (in Context) 2 Thessalonians 1 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
