Grat·i·tude

Paraphrasing 2 Corinthians 4:14-15, Jesus died on the cross and God resurrected him for the sake of His lost children. And as God's grace reaches more and more people, through you, they will become thankful to God, therefore giving Him all the glory.

That word thankfulness or gratitude in Greek is eucharistia (yoo-khar-is-tee'-ah), which means "the giving of thanks for God's grace." This is the same origin of the word, Eucharist, or better known as the "Lord's Supper", "Table of the Lord". This is the moment to pray to God and announce our thankfulness to God for providing the food on our table.

What does this all mean? Well, its that same gratitude, or thankfulness of the heart towards God that you reveal, which leads those to praise Him. In other words, when you truly appreciate what God has done for you, the revelation in your spirit causes you to make your life about Him. This same revelation causes you to appreciate those things that are unseen more than the things that are seen revealing the glory of God. This powerful glory of God attracts people. When those attracted to the glory receive their revelation, there will be an undoubted thankfulness for God's grace.

So continue to praise God in advance. Do not be afraid to reveal what God has done for you.  Don't shy away from saying your grace in public. You cannot keep your blessings to yourself. Nor should you keep your testimonies to yourself. Your breakthrough is quite possibly what someone else needs.
