Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! – 2 Corinthian 9:15
Sharon’s favorite Christmas gift last year from her husband Andy was an antique treasure chest. Inside were three boxes with additional gifts of chocolates and jewelry. She enjoyed each gift within the gift.
When God sent His Son Jesus to be the Saviour of the world, He gave us many gifts within the gift. Now when people receive the gift of Jesus, they also receive these special gifts, which they could obtain in no other way:
Forgiveness of Sin. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:” (Eph. 1:7)
Teaching from the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:26)
Eternal life and a home in Heaven. John said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2)
A love like no other. ” As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.”
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:9,13)
Have you received God’s indescribable Gift? You only need to ask. —Anne Cetas
THE ABCs OF SALVATION
Admit that your a Sinner (Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”)
Believe on Christ (Acts 16:31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”)
Confess your faith (Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”)
Jesus is both the gift and the Giver of every good gift.
