Glorifying

Luke 2:20 The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them. (NAS) Greetings! We pray that you had a wonderful Christmas!

Immanuel John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. Merry Christmas!

God’s Grace, Our Gratitude, His Glory

2 Corinthians 4:15-16 “For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.” (emphasis mine) NASB   I was recently on Faith radio with my friend Carmen LeBerge discussing Thanksgiving when she used the word, “Thanks-living.” That word and thought grabbed my attention as it really gets to the heart of being a Christ-follower and the...
