Believe: Good Gifts
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8
One of the best things about Christmas is giving gifts! For some, being the giver of a good gift can be more exciting than receiving one. It is so much fun watching the excitement and happiness wash over someone who just received something good. Sometimes we are so excited to give gifts that we can’t wait until Christmas Day? Have you ever been so excited to give a gift that you just couldn’t wait? It is such a great feeling to give good gifts!
We love to give good gifts but no one loves to give gifts more than Father God! His gifts far exceed anything we could ever give or offer here on earth. With God, there is no naughty or nice list. It does not matter how many mistakes you have made or how many times you have failed, he always guarantees the gift of salvation through His son Jesus Christ. The gift of his saving grace is simply and purely out of his great love and kindness to you. God delights in giving good gifts to all His children and He is so excited to give you your gift! And the good news is you don’t have to wait until Christmas! You can receive God’s free gift of salvation whenever you are ready. His gift is available through faith and believing that His son Jesus lived, died and rose again for the forgiveness of all sins. Now that is a gift worth receiving! If you know how good you feel giving good gifts, imagine the excitement and joy on the Father’s face when you receive your gift from Him! Surely, all of Heaven would rejoice!
Ephesians 2:4, Matthew 7:11 Psalm 66:1
