After a greeting, we turn to a passage where thanksgiving is in view. Thanksgiving helps us see what God has given us, and directing it to God reminds us of who has given it. We’ll see here that thanks is appropriate to God because he’s given us gospel partnership, and is committed to finishing the good work he’s begun in us.
