How Can I Repay the Lord?
How can I repay the Lord for all the good He has done for me?--------Psalm 116:12
This is a question that should resonate in the heart and mind of EVERY believer. When we think of ALL the things that God has done for us we should, like the Psalmist say: “How can I repay the Lord for all the good He has done for me?”
Let’s take a little inventory of just a few, good things that we KNOW God has done for us.
First, and I think, the MOST IMPORTANT good that He has done was to exemplify His MARVELOUS, UNENDING LOVE, for the Crown of His Creation, mankind, by sending His Only Begotten Son to come to this old, sinful, wretched world to suffer, bleed, and be put to death so that a sinful, wretched world might be SAVED from ALL of their transgressions, and have the HOPE of Heaven in their future.
Secondly, we, who have ACCEPTED His gift of SALVATION, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, His Only Begotten Son, have the ASSURANCE of spending ALL ETERNITY in Heaven with ALL the other believers and best of ALL to be there in the presence of God Almighty and His Blessed Son, Jesus Christ.
Thirdly, He promises that He will NEVER LEAVE us nor FORSAKE us, while we reside on this earth. And He doesn’t BREAK His promises. But it is our part in this relationship to TRUST, and BELIEVE He is FAITHFUL to ALL His Children. And is MORE than ABLE to keep His promises to us.
These three GOOD things coupled with ALL the other GOOD things that He has done for each of us, cannot be repaid, because, for one thing, WE CANNOT save ourselves from an eternity in Hell. We are His creation and He can take us out as fast or faster than we came into this wretched, old world, but because of His GREAT LOVE, MERCY, and GRACE, He has provided a PLAN to REDEEM ALL of mankind. And this my dear ones, cannot be repaid.
The ONLY way we can even ATTEMPT to repay Him is, by showing our LOVE and GRATITUDE to Him through our FAITHFULNESS, TRUST and SERVICE for Him and His Beloved Son.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to Him then you are NOT a part of His family and you aren’t experiencing ALL the GOOD things He has planned just for YOU. All He asks of you, in return is to LOVE, be FAITHFUL, TRUST and SERVE Him. You can do that NOW by: CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and receive ALL the GOOD things He has waiting for you. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
