God’s Greatest Gift

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?

God’s Kingdom

God’s kingdom in our lives rules even and especially in the face of opposition difficulties or weakness. He loves to prepare a table for us in the presence of our enemies. The love of Christ is most powerful and most clearly seen when faced with suffering and will carry us all the way to the throne of God!

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:37‭-‬39 ESV

Still Thirsty

Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
John 4:10 NKJV

Jesus stops not at wells for the water but waits by them for thirsty souls. Thank God he waits in the heat of the day even when we least expect!
