January 27th The Greatest Gift

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I think sometimes we may get careless about the depth and truth of this verse. Every Christian knows the verse. Some may even share it with others. But the deep truth of this verse is worthy of deep thought. In this verse we see the:

Greatest story ever told

Greatest person = God

Greatest passion = so love

Greatest present = his only son

Greatest prospect = whosoever will

Greatest promise = shall never perish

Greatest possession = everlasting life

Greatest plan = believe in him

Greatest privilege = share it with another

Precious gift - Jesus without spot or blemish left majesty above to live as a peasant and die as a criminal - all for unworthy sinners

Perfect gift - A gift that never will fail us - on the mountain top & thru the valley: HE is with us

Powerful gift - Jesus can change any life - He sure changed mine!

Priceless gift - highest value of anything ever given - His Son & His blood

Permanent gift - once you have him you can’t lose him (Oh praise God!)

Motive for the gift: love - sacrificial love

Measure of his gift - gave it all He had - held nothing back

Meaning of his gift - life for you & for me and whosoever will believe and call upon Him

Meditation of his gift - Why in the world would the Almighty want to spend time with me? Eternity?

The Giver is Worthy of all our best & Worthy of all our worship!
