Why We Owe God Our Devotion

Anyone ever done you a service or favor and then followed up with this statement, "You owe me big-time!"

Makes me think of Shylock, the money lender in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. He demanded re-payment even if the borrower had nothing to give but a pound of his own flesh.

How different God is! We owe Him so much that we could never repay Him, but what does He say to us?

"Let Me help you. Love my Son: accept His sacrifice as your own. Come to the Cross where your debt will be canceled."

What wondrous love is this!

We must never get so busy in our daily lives that we neglect expressing our devotion to the One who has given us the map to His own home, safe passage on our way, and the key that opens the front door.

"To God be the glory,
Great things He has done.
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
and opened the life gate that all may go in."
