Have You Opened Your Gifts?

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Jesus is the greatest person who has ever lived; each year we celebrate His Birth as the coming of our salvation.

Salvation is the greatest gift of all. Salvation is the only gift that everyone really needs.

Salvation is presented to us as the ultimate Christmas gift in what is perhaps the best known verse of the Bible.

This Christmas do you have that greatest security? Do you know that you have received the greatest possession of all—Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

Sometimes Christmas is especially hard for those who compare what they want with what others get. But the good news is that as a Christian, God has given us everything in Christ.

All we have to do is unwrap and  experience all that He has given to us.

OPEN THE GIFT OF FORGIVENESS
Because of our sin—we are all debtors to God’s Righteousness; so we need forgiveness.

OPEN THE GIFT OF JUSTIFICATION
Because of our sin—we are all guilty convicts in God’s sight; so we need justification.

OPEN THE GIFT OF REGENERATION
Because of our sin—we are all dead in our trespasses and sin; so we need regeneration.

OPEN THE GIFT OF RECONCILIATION
Because of our sin—we are all enemies of God; so we need reconciliation.

OPEN THE GIFT OF ADOPTION
Because of our sin—we are all strangers to God; so we need adoption.

OPEN THE GIFT OF REDEMPTION
Because of our sin—we are all slaves to unrighteousness; so we need redemption.

OPEN THE GIFT OF SANCTIFICATION
Because of our sin—we are all defiled; so we need sanctification.

Keep this list in your Bible, at home, on your computer, put one on your mirror where you start your day and in your car. Where ever you need to keep reminding yourself of what great thing God has done for us.
