Thanksgiving For Those Who Believe

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.  (I Thessalonians 2:13) 

Every saint should be thankful when God’s Word is received as truth.  So often, His Word is considered the word of men.  Saints and sinners alike should receive God’s Word with affection and holiness knowing that His Word is filled with wisdom, truth and goodness.  The word of men mean nothing.  They will cease.  They will fail.  The Word of God means everything.  It will remain until the end of time.  It will never fail.  It will never return void.  When the Word of God is received with gladness and acceptance, it warms the heart of those who share the Gospel and of every true Christian.  Thank God for those who hear the Word.  Thank God for those who receive the Word.  Thank God for those who accept the Word.  Thank God for those who live the Word.
