“The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Gifts! Who doesn’t like to receive a gift? Presents wrapped with brightly colored paper and bows. A gift tag with OUR name on it. And most importantly, someone who loves us holding the gift and offering, “Take it! I bought it for you!”
Beaming, our Lord God waits for us to take the gift He bought for us; a gift that cost His Son’s life.
Forgivesess is the first thing we see in the gift. Then His Holy Spirit, heaven, friendship eternity, and so much more! And with each day, we realize there’s more of God’s love to unwrap. The Gift Giver smiles as our eyes light up in joyful praise.
Lord God, thank You for GIVING us the GIFT of eternal life in Christ Jesus and for all that is encompassed in the gift of His life! We praise You!
