Overflowing Thanksgiving

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.

Thanks should not be a boring thing that we feel obligated to do as Christians.  It should be an immediate response and come without reservation or even thought.

If we have an attitude of thanksgiving, we won’t be able to contain our thankfulness, it will be overflowing.  As thanksgiving overflows, it gives glory to God.

We should be especially thankful when God’s grace is reaching more and more people through the gospel.  There is perhaps nothing that should excite us more or cause us to give greater thanks than when another person becomes a Christian.

Of course thanksgiving can overflow from anything that we are thankful for.  Any expression of thanksgiving gives glory to God because we recognize that He is the source of all that we have to be thankful for.

Most importantly however, Jesus is the reason for our salvation.  Our thanks should overflow because of our own salvation but also in celebration for what God does in the lives of others as they become Christians.
