What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me? – Psalms 116:12
Good question. If it is true that, by His grace, God has saved us from a Christless eternity, has given us new and abundant life, has personally (by the Holy Spirit) in-dwelt us and has blessed us with spiritual gifts and ministry. If all these things are true, then how could we ever repay Him?
The answer is very simple.
Live for Him. Let our lives reflect God’s presence. Live victoriously that others might see the evidence of Christ’s possession and show the world that we not only claim the promises of God, we also believe them!
This is all that God asks. Can we do it? Better yet, will we?
In our daily lives, we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but the gratefulness that makes us happy. – Albert Clarke
