18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of
God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

This cannot, nor will not happen without the Holy
Spirit controlling our lives. In every single thing,
thank God, be grateful! Because, this is the will of
God in Christ Jesus to you. If you are not thankful or

Romans 1:8

all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole

2nd Thessalonians 1:3

it is meet, because that your faith groweth
exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all
toward each other aboundeth;

>> The food you eat.

Romans 14:6
He that regardeth the day, regardeth [it] unto the
Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord
he doth not regard [it]. He that eateth, eateth to the
Lord, ...
