November 25, 2015 – Colossians 3:15

Colossians3-15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.  Colossians 3:15How many times have you told God, “Thank you, today?” Or anyone else?  It is more than manners….it is an attitude adjustment!  It shows love, respect, honor and that the person addressed is needed and wanted.  Their presence is a gift of peace.Praising Father God for His Ultimate Gift, Lord Jesus, is ever before us and before the world.  Yet, the world does not understand and tries to erase our love for Jesus through intimidation and fear of our lives.   When we accept the Word of Christ and it is the foremost blessing of all, then even losing our life here on earth is of no consequence.  For even as Jesus was raised from the dead, so will we live again with Him in the home He has made for us.Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.” John 14:1-3  Words to live by.  Forever Words to sing and praise God every moment we have breath.The following verse gives us the way Thanksgiving should be celebrated.  It is ever a ‘forever celebration.’  For in Christ Jesus is our fulfillment, our joy, and He is the song of life we sing.Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16
