Timeless truths about God’s gifts. James 1 teaches us that “every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father above.” There is no shadow of turning with Him. He is the same! He doesn’t change. So, His nature is perfectly consistent. He has given us some incredible gifts. Let’s unwrap a few.
He has given us His Son. John 3:16 says that our Father loves us so much He GAVE His Son. The greatest gift He has given us is the Lord Jesus Christ who became the perfect sacrifice for our sin.
The Father has given us His Spirit. We do not have to walk through life alone. The Holy Spirit indwells the life of a believer to comfort, teach, convict, and conform us into Christlikeness.
We have also been given His Word. The Bible is God’s love letter to us. In His word we find truth and wisdom. His word is our sword. The Bible is alive and active! It is a wonderful gift.
Our Father has given us the freedom to choose. You make choices everyday. You can choose to enter a relationship with Him or not. However, we must realize that sin blinds us to the truth. So, our Father has given us the evidence of truth that is in our conscience and creation. You are free to follow Christ or to follow your own way.
These are just a few wonderful gifts. We could talk about His gift of love, relationships, heaven… He offers these gifts to you. I hope you will receive them.
