3 We give thanks [eucharisteo] to God [theos] and [kai] the Father [pater] of our [hemon] Lord [kurios] Jesus [Iesous] Christ [Christos], praying [proseuchomai] always [pantote] for [peri] you [humon], KJV-Interlinear
3 We give thanks to God, the
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, NASB
No matter who we are.No matter
what our circumstances are.No matter what
others think of us, or how others treat us.Our lives depend on God, and on God alone,
not anyone, nor anything else, in this world.
You will have your
hopes and dreams shattered.You will
have your expectations demolished. People will disappoint you.Many of the things you want in life, simply will not come to pass.
For some, life will
come relatively easy, or it will seem to be that way.For most people, life will be one long stream
of endless days and years of difficulty.
But remember one
important thing, unreasonable expectations, from this world, never come true.God is the only truth, and the only reliable
hope in all the universe.
All prayer is directed
to God the Father, and to nothing and to no one else.Prayers are never directed to Jesus, to Mary,
to any saint, to ancestors, to rocks, to animals or birds or fish, to angels,
to moons or planets, to the natural elements of nature, to the wind or fire or
anything else you can think of.
All prayer is submitted
to the Father, in the name of Christ.Jesus Christ is the only person who has executed life in
work is the only work of any value.
Mans work is valueless.Mans efforts in attempting to bypass Christ,
is an arrogant attempt to insert mans plan into Gods plan.Man tries to approach God based on his (mans)
own effort and design, and that is rejected by God.
Man is imperfect and
therefore anything man does, is imperfect, and of the sin nature.
Man has ulterior
motives, driven by his sin nature.Man
will make rules that favor his convenience and selfish desires.Man will compromise standards, and invent
rules as he goes along.God has truth
and God is immutable.
Because God is stable
and perfect, then His plan will work to our benefit and success, despite mans
or evils interference or attempts to steal Gods plan away from Him. Prayer
keeps God and Gods plan, in the forefront of your mind always.
Even if you are
cheated, lied to, betrayed, taken advantage of,
maligned, beaten and so forth, your life does not depend on this world, but on
God.This world will go away one day,
and your life will continue on in heaven, one day.And when that time comes, then if you have
been faithful to your spiritual advance, despite your hardships and
disappointments, then your life will be phenomenally blessed, beyond your
wildest dreams, forever.
For that, you need to
be thankful every moment of every day of your life, which is often extremely
difficult to do, but necessary so that the world and evil cannot defeat you, by
wearing you down.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
