  • "Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift." the Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior the Living Word (II Cor. 9:15).
  • Thanks be unto God for the written Word "The Lord gave the Word." "Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly. " (Ps. 68:11; Col 3:16)

  • Thanksgiving

  • Encouragement
  • Exhortation
  • Obedience
  • Submission
  • Prayerfulness
  • And blessings without number!
