For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
This is the week. Some folks are hustling and bustling around trying to find that last present; that special item, that perfect gift that will make some loved one's heart melt with joy. Others finished their gift shopping and making months ago and are just looking forward to the big day. It's fun to give and it's fun to receive.
Dear ones, have a wonderful Christmas celebration. But in all your getting, get life.
I know I've said this before, but the Spirit compells me to say it again. We EARN the results of sin, but life eternal through Jesus Christ is a GIFT of God. We must learn to receive the gift with all of its benefits and responsibilities.
Let your heart melt with the joy of relationship with the Father through the Son. Be warmed by the feeling of walking in your destiny as you follow after the Holy Spirit. Get energy from moving in the passion that was written into your being before you were born.
If you don't get anything else for Christmas, get life.
1 John 5:11-15
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
On earth, peace, good will toward men!
