The Ultimate Gift
What are you looking for this Christmas? It
feels as though it is getting more difficult to find an original and
personal gift for a loved one:
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. (James 1:17)
But what is the ultimate gift?
It is described in the Bible as "the gift
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
Can this gift be bought, or can we earn it through good deeds?
Paul, writing to the church at Ephesus in
the 1st century, says that we are saved through faith because of God's
grace (God's love and mercy):
How did God give this gift?
The ultimate gift of eternal life can only be received because God gave his son as the perfect sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins.
So if God is so willing to give this gift, do we have to do anything to receive it?
Yes! We must believe in God, read His word
and keep His commandments. We have a FREE

you to both study and understand your Bible.
