Bible Ballistics: BBs #601     A Month Of Gratitude??? #3


As we continue on with our month of gratitude, I am thankful for the Word of God, and it’s import to me because it His Word that is our road map, our guide, our encouragement, our true north!  While we live in a world that refutes virtually every principle of godly living—they can’t change “Truth”!

Jesus saith unto him,

I am the way,

the truth,

  and the life:

no man cometh unto the Father,

but by me.”  John 14:6

The world around us says we’re all “going” to the same place, we’re just talking different paths, but Jesus makes a defining statement that clearly declares that HE alone is “The Way” to God!  Paul also reinforces this truth in His letter to the Philippian believers.

And being found in fashion as a man,

he humbled himself,

and became obedient unto death,

even the death of the cross.

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him,

and given him a name

which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus

every knee should bow,

of things in heaven,

and things in earth,

and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.”           Philippians 2:8-11

When we belong to Jesus, we can truly rejoice and thank our God in, for and through every situation.

In every thing give thanks:

 for this is the will of God

in Christ Jesus

concerning you.”   1 Thessalonians 5:18

But thanks be to God,

which giveth us the victory

through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren,

be ye stedfast,


always abounding

in the work of the Lord,

forasmuch as ye know

that your labour

is not in vain

in the Lord.”   1 Corinthians 15:57-58

Thanks be unto God

for his unspeakable gift.”  2 Corinthians 9:15

And a final word in regard to thankfulness from Paul.  May it encourage each of us to walk in the spirit of gratitude and reflect a joyful, thankful heart in all we do—to a world desperately in need!

Rejoice in the Lord


and again I say, Rejoice.

5 Let your moderation

be known unto all men.

The Lord is at hand.

6 Be careful for nothing;

but in every thing

by prayer

and supplication

with thanksgiving

let your requests be made known

unto God.

7 And the peace of God,

which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts

and minds

through Christ Jesus.”   Philippians 4:4-7

Here’s my heart’s word to you today!

Giving thanks


for all things

unto God and the Father

in the name

of our Lord Jesus Christ;”   Ephesians 5:20

You are part of of my list of “all things” to be thankful for!

Amen and Amen!
