God has given us a gift, and it was the GREATEST gift!
Why was it the greatest gift?
Because with this gift came EVERYTHING we would EVER need!
Jesus was that gift.
He was punished to give us forgiveness. (Col 1:14)
He endured torment to give us peace. (Is 53:5)
He was made sin to give us righteousness. (2 Cor 5:21)
He was beaten to give us healing. (1 Pet 2:24)
He became cursed to give us the blessing. (Gal 3:13)
He became poor to give us abundance. (2 Cor 8:9)
He was rejected by the Father to give us acceptance with the Father. (Mt 15:34)
He lay down His life to give us eternal life. (Jn 3:16)
A gift isn’t earned, and a gift isn’t bought.
A gift is simply received.
Jesus was God’s greatest gift. =#faithtalks
