In Super Villain Classics #1(1983) Galactus makes the astonishing assertion:
[...] it is my destiny to one day give back to the universe infinitely more than I have ever taken from it.
Has this statement ever been explained?

It may not have been an intentional reference to to the comic you mentioned, but Galactus did help defeat the universe-endangering being known as Abraxas.
Abraxas... spontaneously assumed the embodiment of destruction that was the counterpart to the very act of creation embodied by the being known as Eternity.... He soon began to cut a swath of terror through various alternate realities... Abraxas taunted the Fantastic Four with the inevitability of his coming.
Galactus took the Nullifer from Abraxas, giving it to Mister Fantastic who used the weapon, destroying himself and Abraxas.
