For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17
Much pain and distance from God has come to the world through the deviation of one man. But God´s grace and His righteousness are now offered to us. Salvation is proclaimed to come through Christ! Jesus is God´s gift to the world! He is the Good News we need to hear! All the blessings of the Divine come to us through this Gift! He is the tie that can bind us once again with the Father! There are some who would downplay the Son. There are many who will refuse to lift up God´s precious Gift to us. But some will hear and will embrace this blessed Provision from above! Are we among those who receive the Gift of Jesus that will reign in life?
The Gift of Jesus is not a name we call ourselves or a set of doctrines. This Gift brings the grace of God and His righteousness to us. But He only brings the blessings of God as His Presence is felt, found, and experienced. The wise will learn to seek Him personally. The true follower will press on until He lives in them. The abundant provisions of God´s Gift will reign in our lives if we get close enough, and know our Savior well enough today! Shall we pray that Jesus comes to us now and reigns in our life forever?
Give us the Gift of Life today! Give us abundant grace and Your righteousness! Give us our Savior to follow, to seek and to love! Let us live intimately with the Gift of Jesus we pray!
