The Greatest Gift

cb devo dec16“For by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;” Ephesians 2:8 (ASV)

 Thinking back – what is the greatest gift we ever received?  Remembering my childhood, I remember my first pair of high heel shoes and a birthday party outside of my home at a skating rink when I turned 10.  It was such a special day.  The feeling of being a princess was definitely felt that day.  There have been many other occasions when gifts blew me away.  When thinking of the greatest gift, however, it is important to remember our gift of salvation.  Nothing can ever compare to God sending His one and only son to be a human like us. Only to be tempted, abused and hurt by others.  He could have stayed in heaven where life is perfect – no pain, no hurt or hunger.  But, His love was so great for us He sent His son for us.  Take a minute and imagine giving up one’s only son, knowing the struggles and the pain he would endure.  Today, hold that thought, and with every word you speak make sure it is full of appreciation of that gift.  Let the words flow of the love that was given to us, undeserving yet filled with love.

 “Father, never let me forget your sacrifice.  Let me be a beacon of light sharing the greatest gift to all around me.”

 

For His Glory,
