God could give us silver or gold. He could make us famous, talented or politically powerful. God could allow us to live in a palace a mansion or even a paradise island. But instead of any of the gifts that we might see on our favorite game show He gave us His word. God considers nothing if higher or enduring value than His own word. Consider that all we know of God is because He chose to send us His amazing, astonishing and undeserved gift.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
Receiving God’s greatest gift means we are saved and forgiven. Living out His gift is eternal and abundant life. Guarding His gift means that one day we will find our treasure waiting where no thief can break in and steal or moth and rust destroy. What will we do with this great gift of Jesus Christ today?
