James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
As we come into the Christmas time, Christmas has become so many things to so many people.
- For some, Christmas is about time of family
- For some, Christmas is about time off from school or work
- For some, Christmas is about season of peace and goodwill
- For some, Christmas is about giving and receiving presents
For me, it is about a very special gift.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Gift: Is something you receive that you didn’t earn.
Wage: A payment for something you do or earn.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
- For something to be a gift it has to be given and received
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
