 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
From Wikipedia: Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
For Christians, abounding in thanksgiving is an integral part of our walk in the Lord Jesus Christ. We should be exceedingly thankful for our Savior – for who He is, for what He has done for us, and for our resultant position in Him.
Jesus is God our Savior – in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily (verse 9). He is the head of all principality and power (verse 10).
Jesus died for our sins (verse 14), was buried, and was raised from the dead (verse 12). He triumphed over the principalities and powers of this world (verse 15).
Once we received Him by faith, He made us partakers in His life (verse 13), freed us from the law (verse 14), and forgave ALL of our sins (verse 13) – past, present, and future. We are complete in Him (verse 10). Our bodies of sin have been put off by Him (verse 11). We are reconciled to God. We have eternal life that can never be lost or forfeited.
Thank you Jesus!
PS – don’t let anyone spoil (ruin) you by leading you astray with fleshly, man-made philosophies that are based on the principles (rudiments) of this world (verse 8). This includes Calvinists, Lordship “salvationists”, and all of the various accusers of the brethren.
