Let me ask you (the reader) a question: what’s the best gift that you received? It can be a birthday gift, a Christmas gift, or any kind of gift from any occasion.
Have you thought of an answer?
Alright, I give you more time to think.
Well, time’s up! The reason I asked that is because I want to share the greatest gift that I’ve received. First, let me share a verse:
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”– Romans 6:23
Yes, the greatest gift that someone has ever given me is Jesus. But honestly, there are times that I lose sight of that. Imagine, I (a sinner) who deserved death, was given life.
The thing about gifts is that before you receive it, someone has to pay for it for you. Just like when you buy a Christmas present for someone. Let’s say a shirt. You have to go to the store and pay for it before you give it to the recipient. It’s the same here, someone had to pay for my debt.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”– Romans 5:8
God out of His love chose to give me life. Chose to pay for my debt. Chose to give me His son, Jesus. And me, the forgetful one, try to look for satisfaction and joy from other things when I already have the only thing that will satisfy me and give me joy (Psalms 16:11).
But even though I forget, He still draws me back to Him. He remains faithful, even when I am not. I just want to share this to you. This gift is available for you. You can receive it! Just put your trust in God, and receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and I promise you, He will do wonderful things for you, in you, and through you.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
I’ll always be here if you want to ask questions, talk, or comment about what I wrote. That’s it for now. 🙂
