THEREFORE . . .
Believers possess life and immortality and live in God's love because of the Lord's sacrifice.
Therefore every Saint can join with Paul and say, "Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift," 2 Corinthians 9'15.
Along with His marvellous gift John says that Jesus has made us "kings and priests to His God and Father".
And the Lord speaks through Peter to all who believe and says:
"... you are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood,
a holy nation,
His own special people,
Knowing all these things releases every Believer so:
that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you
out of darkness into His marvellous light," 1 Peter 2'9.
by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God,
that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name."
"But do not forget to do good and to share,
for with such sacrifices God is well pleased,"
