VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Grace and Peace to us from GOD

"Grace (favor and spiritual blessing) be to you and [heart] peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."

2 Corinthians 8:7 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.

2 Corinthians 9:8 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.

Romans 5:15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ.

One truth about when GOD gives, He always gives more than enough, super abounding, super fluous, always exceeding, always excelling, always increasing gift from GOD, that's how GOD gives, and we can see His Gift, His Only Begotten SON OF GOD. He will not spare His Excellence to give away in exchange of us.

B. Continous Thanksgiving to GOD

"I thank my God at all times for you because of the grace (the favor and spiritual blessing) of God which was bestowed on you in Christ Jesus"

1. Grace given to us

2. Grace in CHRIST JESUS

We end up thanking GOD for everything, at all times and in all occasions. We can only do that as a reply. We can't equal His giving to us, we can't equal His gifts to us, we can only thank, with a grateful, thankful, full of gratitude and appreciative heart, we can reply 'THANK YOU LORD JESUS CHRIST' for what you've done and for all YOU've done to me.

Colossians 2:7 (Amplified Bible)

Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving.
