Undoubtedly someone will say that we can never repay what the Lord has done for us, but does that mean we should not show by our lives that we thank the Lord for what He has done?

But Hezekiah did not repay according to the favor shown him, for his heart was lifted up; therefore wrath was looming over him and over Judah and Jerusalem. Then Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD did not come upon them in the days of Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 32.25–26). 

Therefore, the Lord expects to see something in us as a form of repayment toward Him.

Questions:

  • Does your life show your gratefulness for the Lord’s gifts toward you?
  • What more can you do?
