Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened to a certain king, which would take account of his servants.…
God is our great creditor on account —
I. OF ORIGINAL SIN (Ephesians 2:3).
II. Of ACTUAL sin (Isaiah 59:2).
III. Of OBEDIENCE by natural and Divine law (Romans 2:14, 15).
1. Natural. God is our creator (Acts 17:28). Jesus Christ is our Redeemer.
2. Divine. He is our King (Romans 13:1). We are His spiritual subjects and followers.
IV. OF GRATITUDE FOR ALL BLESSINGS. Temporal and spiritual (1 Corinthians 12:6-11).
V. OF EARNEST LOVE FOR ANY GOOD WHICH WE MAY HAVE DONE. To Him be all the praise and honour (Psalm 115:1).
