Biblical Concept: Gratitude

(Parentheses are mine.)


NAS Colossians 2:7 having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. (Colossians: “overflowing with gratitude.”) (Theorem: Faith, firmly rooted, built up, established, instructed → gratitude.)

NAS 1 Timothy 4:4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude; (Foods: “received with gratitude”) (Created by God, good, not rejected, received gratitude.)

NAS Hebrews 12:28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; (To God: “let us show gratitude.”) (Kingdom not shaken, gratitude, service, reverence, awe.)



NAS 1 Timothy 4:3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods, which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. (“foods, which God has created to be gratefully shared in”) (Forbid and abstain versus created, shared, believe, truth.)
