Forever Debtors

God's salvation, blessings in this life, blessings in eternity

I have enjoyed already enough of God's benefits to supply me with matter for constant praise for at least a thousand years to come. If God were to close my account tomorrow and refuse any longer to honor me with His favors, the circumstances of His grace to me so far would require that I should still thank Him unceasingly with tears of honest gratitude. 
~ A. W. Tozer 

How would we feel if God stopped showing us favor in this life? 

Would we be content knowing that one day we will live in forever favor in a place where Christ will wipe away every tear? 

Sometimes we think God "owes" us something. But we are and always will be His debtors. 

"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!" 1 John 3:1 

May we live like we believe this--grateful for every blessing, never demanding things of God, continually offering Him praise and thanksgiving.

  2. This is really good and humbling. We have so much to be grateful for and it is easy to fall into the trap of "poor me..." Thank you for this today! Blessings!
