Corinthians 14:18 “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:” The Apostle Paul was called the Pharisee of the Pharisees he was very diverse in the Law of Moses Paul was a religious man but when Paul encountered Jesus Christ, he made the change and left religion and started preaching/teaching the kingdom He gave God thanks for the gospel proclamation. This is very important because this is how we get people to come to Christ Romans 1:8 Have you ever made a list of things for which to thank God? We should give thanks for this earth, from it we originated. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and on the sixth day God created human from the dust of the earth. He also made the atmosphere ideal for us to live on planet earth. We are to give God thanks. We should give thanks for the country we live in because we have freedom of worship. Such freedom is very hard to find in many other countries of the world.
