Overflowing Gratitude

Colossians 2:6-7
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord
you must continue to walk in Him.

From NetBible Col 2:6

  • walk[4043] = continue to live in obedience to, to make progress/grow in

Let your roots grow down{deep and firm} into Him and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong{established} in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

From NetBible Col 2:7

  • rooted[4492] = to strengthen with roots, to render firm,
    to fix, establish, cause a person or a thing to be thoroughly grounded
  • built up[2026] = To finish the structure of which the foundation{Christ} has already been laid, to give constant increase in knowledge and in a life conformed to Christ
  • established[950] = to make firm, sure, strong
  • overflow[4052] = abound, be in excess
    *abounding is used of a flower going from a bud to full bloom.
  • thankfulness[2169] = gratitude, actively grateful
The key to having a grateful heart overflowing with gratitude to the Lord Jesus Christ is to recognize Him as your Lord and to continue to walk in obedience to Him.

2 Corinthians 9:8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

From NetBible 2Co 9:8

  • grace[5485] = thankfulness, gratefulness, gratitude
  • abound[4052] = abound, be in excess, overflow
    *abounding is used of a flower going from a bud to full bloom
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift; His Son Jesus Christ the Lord: a gift too wonderful for words! -2Co 9:15
