What shall I render to the LORD for all his benefits toward me?…
I. THE BENEFITS WHICH WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM GOD. The catalogue is endless. It stretches into eternity. Converting mercy — pardoning mercy — renewing mercy — justifying mercy — restoring mercy — supporting mercy; — where shall I close the enumeration?
II. THE RETURN OF GRATITUDE AND LOVE WHICH GOD REQUIRES AT YOUR HAND.
1. There are methods of glorifying God common to every Christian. Every Christian must dedicate his body to God as His temple. Surrender to Him the key of every apartment. Lay open to Him every chamber of your heart. Let your spirit bow before Him as He enters in, and hail Him Lord of all that it contains.
2. By employing your talents in His service. If you are the property of God, then all the powers of the mind, as well as the members of the body, are individually his right.
(T. Raffles, D. D.)
