Thanksgiving 1996

To Family, Friends, and Partners in the Gospel:

“And the whole earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord …”

God’s glory is to be our ultimate goal in this life and will be for all eternity. To know Him and to participate with the Creator, Sovereign, and Harvest-Master in making His glory known to the nations elicits both humility and hallelujahs! To give thanks to our God and Father, to our Lord and Savior, and to our Comforter and Sanctifier is the result of an overflow of God’s infinite grace working mightily in our lives.

We give our God and Lord thanks and praise for He is good, for His mercies endure forever … for His wonderful works toward us … for He has done marvelous things … because of His judgments … for our Father Who has made us fit to be partakers of the Inheritance … in remembrance of His holiness … for the Gift of Christ and His deliverance from indwelling sin … for Christ’s power and ultimate reign … for Christ’s victory over death and the grave … for the triumph of the Cross … for the nearness of God’s presence … for all men everywhere … and for all things!

And to you, our friends and partners in ministry, we give thanks! For the Word of God was received by you … your faith and love produced by the grace of God is continually being exhibited to us. So … our hearts are abounding with praise and thanksgiving to our God and to you because of the deluge of God’s abundant grace bestowed on us … THANK YOU!!

May this Season, beginning with Thanksgiving, continue with the joyous Celebration of the King of Glory … come to earth, crucified, and resurrected to the right hand of God in heaven victorious. May the Lamb Who sits upon the Throne find us faithful, fruitful, filled with His Spirit, fighting the “good fight of Faith,” following the Shepherd, and feasting with the Lord … until He comes … again! Maranatha!

You are in our hearts and prayers continually! “Let us give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus” (I Thess. 5:18).

With thankful hearts and joyous spirits,
