The best gift man has received is the redemptive power of being forgiven. We are given grace and kindness by our Father in Heaven through His son Jesus Christ. It is not of our works,but by faith on our part do we receive this most precious Gift From God! (Ephesians 2:7,8) That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Jesus Christ. For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves:it is the Gift Of God.
The world offers so many pleasures of sin for a season, but we know that salvation comes by no other name than Christ himself the eternal gift of the obedient soul! (Psalm 32:5) I acknowledged my sin unto thee,and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said,I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord;and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin Selah.
We can safely depend on the promises given by our Father in Heaven,for He is Faithful. He Loves His children and His hope is that we turn to Him in truth and serve Him out of a pure heart. (Numbers 23:19) God is not a man,that he should lie;neither the son of man,that he should repent:hath he said,and shall he not do it?or hath he spoken,and shall he not make it good?
Redemption saves us from an eternity without God, may we genuinely repent and turn to Him in all sincerity! (Isaiah 1:18) Come now, and let us reason together,saith the Lord:though your sins be as scarlet,they shall be as white as snow;though they be red like crimson,they shall be as wool.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee (Titus 2:11-15).
