What To Give Back?


"How can I repay the Lord for all His goodness to me" (Psa. 116:12)?

Do any of you send out Christmas cards? Are you one of those people who get a card from someone that you have not sent one to, and feel the necessity to fire one right back? Its Okay to fess up. Confession is good for the soul. Our verse today shows God as the benefactor and us as the recipients. It has always been this way. It also shows that the person writing is feeling some obligation to give something in return. (you might enjoy reading the rest of the chapter)

Lets look quickly at a few of the things we have received. We are the benefactors of His creation.(Gen. 2:7) Along with that, we have been made in His image are the "head honchos" here on earth. (Gen 1:26 & 28). In Him we have; Security (Matt. 6:25-30), Redemption (Eph. 1:7), Guidance (Jer. 10:17), Hope (Tit. 3:7).

So, we've gotten the card and its time to send one back. "How can I repay the Lord for all His goodness to me?" 1. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind" (Matt. 22:27) LOVE HIM. 2. "Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before our Maker, for He is our God and we are His people" (Psa. 95:6 & 7). WORSHIP HIM. 3. "Remember your Creator in the days of your youth" (Eccl. 12:1 REMEMBER HIM. 4. "Worship your Lord and serve Him only" SERVE HIM. 5. "Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven"(Matt.5:16) GLORIFY HIM. 6. "As God's fellow workers, we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain" (2 Cor. 6:1) WORK WITH HIM.

We can indeed give back....Lets do it... Have a wonderful week...Go about doing good...Love mark Phil. 4:11
