Christ Jesus

Unwrap It!

04/16/2019

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 holding the gift and offering, “Take it! I bought it for you!”  Beaming, our Lord God waits for us to take the gift described in Romans 6:23. That in spite of our sin, He offers the “free gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Our Heavenly Father gives us  a gift that cost His Son’s life. Forgiveness is the first thing we see in the gift. Then the gifts of His Holy Spirit, heaven, friendship, eternity, and so much more!  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.

“The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

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!

ONE MEDIATOR

“There is one God, and one Mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

1 Timothy 2:5

31 flavors. Baskin Robbins wowed ice cream lovers when it opened. Instead of offering only a few flavors, it offered multiple ones through its combinations of flavors and cones.  Unfortunately, our world has adopted a “31” viewpoint about God. We’ve decided we can get to Him through self-improvement programs, buying our way, or the world religion of our choice. But guess what. God has already chosen His mediator: Christ. Jesus is the one mediator between God and us. God sent Him to save the WORLD. There are not 31 flavors of salvation. There is one. Let’s praise HIM! 

Christ Jesus, We praise You, the ONE MEDIATOR between God and us!
