CQOD: 09/20/05 -- Baillie: giving thanks to God

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 20, 2005
Feast of John Coleridge Patteson, First Bishop of Melanesia, & his Companions, Martyrs, 1871
    And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
    -- Colossians 3:17 (NIV)

    For the power Thou hast given me to lay hold of things unseen:
    For the strong sense I have that this is not my home:
    For my restless heart which nothing finite can satisfy:
        I give Thee thanks, O God.
    For the invasion of my soul by Thy Holy Spirit:
    For all human love and goodness that speak to me of Thee:
    For the fullness of Thy glory outpoured in Jesus Christ:
        I give Thee thanks, O God.
    ... John Baillie (1886-1960)

Quiet time reflection:
    Am I truly thankful for the many blessings I receive?
