My Comments on 1 Corinthians 1:4-9©
God’s Word is so rich, and powerful. Thanking God has become very natural to me as breathing, bathing, and banking. OK those last two weren’t always so natural for me, but neither was praise and thankfulness. I thank God for you my brother and sister, in Christ; we have a connection that is deeper than the name on the door of our church, or the sign in front, or names we are called by others or to my shame, names I have called some of you. We are brothers and sisters in Christ (did I ever mention that those are my two favorite words in the Bible?) We are enriched by Him! The Greek word for enrich is pronounced ploo-tid'-zo, it means to make wealthy (figuratively): - en- (make) rich.
Side Bar: I am not a Greek Scholar; I do use a wonderful program called eSword, why not give it a try yourself?
Now I hope this doesn't shock any of you, but I think it's OK to be rich. I mean wealthy! God, right, here has given us a clue how to get even richer. I may be going out on a limb on this one; tell me what you think.
That is the first stream of conciousness (rambling).
The second one that came to mind is belonging. It is so wonderful to belong, to be accepted! Jesus Christ has accepted me into His family called the church, and His church that meets in Toledo, has accepted me too. If you are "in Christ" why not give thanks to God for His acceptance of you?
Have you been accepted into Jesus' heart?
In His riches,
