THANK GOD FOR THIS GIFT January 2015
Thank God for this gift to wonderful for words 2 Corinthians 9:15
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a philanthropist who had no limit to his resources and who responded to anyone who called on him to help?
I have good news for you. That philanthropist does exist.
His story is the Christian story. The philanthropist is God, then incomparable eternal friend of humanity. The deepest meaning of Christmas is that God Freely gave his best, his all for you.
“This is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
God takes the initiative and offers his gift of love and salvation to you through his Son, Jesus. The cross, which cast its shadow over the manger in Bethlehem, is the tangible proof that he loves you.
For your part, you need only to admit your need and desire to receive this gift. The eternal Philanthropist will respond freely, and you will become a member of God’s family. His Unbreakable promise to you. This Christmas will you receive God’s gift and become his child for all eternity?
