The Gift Is Forever!
…For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. ~ Romans 6:23 [KJV]
God, in His(?) infinite wisdom and compassion toward creation; gave all men (regardless of religion, faith, creed, color, sex, or denomination) – the GIFT of Jesus (The Christ), which really is the ultimate gift!
When you and I give to each other, more often times, then not – it is filled with Ego, and flavored from the standpoint of ‘whats in it for me?’ But, God, gave us the gift of Life – through Jesus Christ our Lord. Even when we were yet sinners, without having to earn this gift, and with no strings attached! God decided, a long time ago, to give us his only begotten Son as a gift – just so we might have a ‘right’ to the Tree of Life! Or as Jesus himself puts it, “….that ye might have Life, and that more abundantly…”[John 4:10 / John 10:10b].
Even though Eternal Life is a Gift – it MUST be accepted! So, I ask of you…as you go throughout this Easter season; that you celebrate the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus. And that you honor Him, by demonstrating love and compassion to all that you meet! Regardless, of religion, color, sex, or creed…because, lets face it – YOU, yourself didn’t earn the Gift of God – it was given to you through love; and it really is the gift that keeps on giving – but it up to you and I to share it! [James 1:17 /Matthew 28:19,20]
Be & Stay Blessed!!
