God is in the Business of Giving . . . by joe littlefield

God is in the business of giving.  James 1:17 tells us every good and perfect gift comes from Him.  Here are a few our presents:  

The great gift giver gives us His Son (John 3:16), the greatest gift the created world will ever know.  Because of His Son God gives us our salvation from sin, ourselves, and eternal separation from Him (1 Pet 1:9).  With that He gives us new life (Eph 2:6) starting now.  New life here; today – October 5, 2014.    And God gives us life never ending (Rom 6:23).  He places us in His family (Eph 2:19) as full heirs (Gal 4:7).  Because of Jesus we are given forgiveness of sin (Col 2:13), redemption from bondage (1 Cor 6:19, 20), reconciliation (Rom 5:10) that brings peace with God (Phil 4:7) and acceptance as beloved children (Ephesians 1:6).  We are justified as righteous (Rom 5:17) and loved with a love that cannot and will not ever end throughout all eternity (1 John 4:8).  

We are given from God everything we need for godly living (2 Pet 1:3).  We are given the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 2:12) who brings power and the gifting of the church (Rom 12:6).  We are given repentance when we sin (2 Tim 2:25) and good works to walk in when we do not (Ephesians 2:10).  And the faith we have that first accepts the glorious news of Jesus and His work- the faith that continues to walk in that work – the faith to hold on to these and other precious promises of God is itself a gift from the great gift giver (Eph 2:8).  Truly, every good and perfect gift is from Him.  He gives us all this and more.  He is worthy our worship.
