The Gift of God

26th DECEMBER 2020

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭6:23‬ ‭

God is a giver of good things, and He cheerfully gives gifts to His children. There is nothing you have today that you did not receive from God. However, we compare all the wonderful gifts God has given to us, the greatest is Himself. God offered Himself for us when we were without strength. In that, while we were yet sinners Christ Jesus died for us.

His life introduced to us eternal life and also brought us into the presence of God. The veil which separated us has been torn, and by His death on the cross and His resurrection, He became our righteousness. We live today justified before the Father because of the gift of righteousness that Christ Jesus gave to us.

As believers, it is our responsibility to fully accept the work of Christ and not be ignorant of what we have received. There are many believers who have been deceived by the enemy to think Christ is not enough for them. Many are looking for happiness and satisfaction in other places, oblivious of the fact that Christ is enough.

In this Christmas season, there is nothing better than to receive Christ and all His goodness in your heart. Do not allow ignorance or pride to withhold God’s blessings from you. Allow Christ to have His full work in your life so that you will be a blessing to others.

Thank You, Jesus, for offering Yourself for us. Help us to acknowledge Your goodness in our lives.
