The Best Gift of All

In light of our country’s most recent horrendous tragedy caused by insanity, I am so very thankful to be reminded , Fear not, for to His kingdom there will be no end.  What a comfort to know that God’s kingdom is a lasting kingdom, an enduring kingdom an eternal kingdom. No one and nothing that can happen ever to me can ever separate me from it. It’s a done deal. Signed, sealed and delivered. Past tense, already happened, all said and done.

Why? Because of God’s marvelous plan. He knew we desperately needed Him.  You see, He created us and although we were created in His image; with that came free-will.  And with free-will came choice.  Now that is where it gets sticky.  Choice means, we are all capable of  doing insane things, because anything that does not line us with love and truth, I actually believe could be considered insane.  And God, knowing this~ made a way of escape for all of us.  Through Jesus.

He is the Way to Life and the only Way out of the consequence of our insanity, no matter how great or small. But to receive this Way comes personal responsibility called choice. We all have the choice whether or not to receive Him. What I mean by receive Him is choose to believe that He is God~ and through His blood and death, He paid the ultimate penalty for our insanity. For my sin and yours.

When we choose to acknowledge that yes, we too are capable of injustice and need a Savior, salvation occurs!  How sweet and simple it is. For us. He did it all.  He paid it all; past, present and future.  Now, we only need to choose life through Him. And when we do, we are washed in the spotless blood of Jesus and become whiter than snow. God no longer sees those injustices that separate us from Him and we are welcomed into His eternal family and kingdom. A kingdom that never ends!

Illness, death, sin, nor any shortcoming can ever IMG_0138keep us from Him, or the promise of eternal life with Him. Now that is some Good News!  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. The best gift of all; free for the asking; available today to you and to me.

I thank you and praise you Jesus for what You’ve chosen to do for all of us.  None of us have been deserving, but You did it anyways. Thank you this Christmas for the best gift of all………………Yourself!
