If we know to say “Thank you” to another human being when an act of kindness is done for us, then we MUST GIVE THANKS TO GOD because he CREATED ALL THINGS (Genesis 1:1).
“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).
Furthermore, we must especially GIVE GOD THANKS for the promise of ETERNAL LIFE through JESUS CHRIST.
“[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his [ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], that whosoever [BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]” (John 3:16).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now [COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT]: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will [JUDGE THE WORLD] in [RIGHTEOUSNESS] by that [MAN WHOM HE HATH ORDAINED]; whereof he hath [GIVEN ASSURANCE UNTO ALL MEN], in that he hath [RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD]” (Acts 17:30-31).
“[FOR AS THE FATHER RAISETH UP THE DEAD, AND QUICKENETH THEM; EVEN SO THE SON QUICKENETH WHOM HE WILL. FOR THE FATHER JUDGETH NO MAN, BUT HATH COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON]: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, [HE THAT HEARETH MY WORD, AND BELIEVETH ON HIM THAT SENT ME, HATH EVERLASTING LIFE, AND] shall not come into condemnation; but [IS PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE]” (John 5:21-24).
“Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (2 Timothy 1:9).
Now, therefore, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).
“[GIVING THANKS ALWAYS FOR ALL THINGS UNTO GOD AND THE FATHER IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (Ephesians 5:20).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
