Thanksgiving is, and ought to be, the deepest note in real Christian faith and experience. If the church and the ministry have really a gospel to proclaim, the fact of that gospel is the deepest occasion for thanksgiving, and for an experience that, whatever it asks, or whatever it gives, begins in thankfulness and gratitude to God.
This was the deepest note in Paul's experience. As a sort of introduction and benediction in all his prayer and praise there burst forth his constant expression of gratitude: "Thanks be unto God lor his unspeakable gift"!
This dominated all his approach toward life, his attitude toward God and man. Beyond all that he could give to God was what God had given him. Beyond all that he could do for his fellow-men was what God had done for them and him. Basal in all Paul's religion, calling forth his gratitude and devotion, inspiring him to service, was the gift of God's love —the fact which made the gospel, and that established the hope of redemption.
