From sincere hearts we give praises and thanks and worship... you today, Lord, for you alone deserve it. You are our joy and peace and blessingour life. When any lasting or other good comes via your church's witness here, we gladly point to you giver of life - the credit is yours. 

"Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all." 29.11one.chron

"He is the fountain and centre of every thing that is bright and blessed. All that we can, in our most exalted praises, attribute to him he has an unquestionable title to. His is the greatness; his greatness is immense and incomprehensible; and all others are little, are nothing, in comparison of him. His is the power, and it is almighty and irresistible; power belongs to him, and all the power of all the creatures is derived from him and depends upon him. His is the glory; for his glory is his own end and the end of the whole creation. All the glory we can give him with our hearts, lips, and lives, comes infinitely short of what is his due. His is the victory; he transcends and surpasses all, and is able to conquer and subdue all things to himself; and his victories are incontestable and uncontrollable." ~ Matthew Henry

Why strive to be what the world calls "a success" when you can opt to all-out worship Christ.. to simply abide in Him, to edify, to encourage, to be fruitful and add real value to other people ..value that you first freely received from God? #better c15.4john
