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.

I am Fay Ann, and it is pretty simple. I am a firm believer in God and a Christian blogger who loves writing. My mission is to encourage others to continue living for Christ and remain faithful, focus and fervent. I know God loves me and he also loves you because you are His child; and his nature is to love His children. I am here to declare God’s praises to those who don’t know him so they can find his marvellous light and leave their world of darkness. It is also my desire to become a channel of inspiration and hope to other people especially women who are struggling. I also have the passion to inspire young people to live their life with a purpose for the Lord. I have learned that what milk is to a baby’s body, the word of God is to the soul. It is the food that fuels healthy spiritual growth and just like your mother used to tell you, if you want to grow you need to eat. I feel strongly that these daily reminders of God’s word and presence in our lives is key to maintaining a Godly perspective as we begin each day; and pray that you will be inspired and blessed by the daily devotionals and are passing them along to family and friends. My favourite activities include reading, writing and spending time with great friends and family. I love to share the best thing in my life, the gospel. Let’s be stronger together. You can subscribe below to receive free grace-filled devotionals for your encouragement. God Bless you richly. Shalom.
