Thoughts for the New Year – John Howe

Principally, this fourfold consideration you should have of [God]in yielding yourselves to Him, namely, as your Owner, your Teacher, your Ruler, and your Benefactor; and all these with the addition of Supreme, it being impossible He should have a superior, or that there should be any one above Him in any of these.  And He is in some sense all these to you before you can have yielded yourselves…, but when you yield yourselves to Him, He will be all these to you in a far higher, nobler, and more excellent sense. – John Howe, Works, Vol. IV (1862), 54.
