Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. – 1 Peter 1:3-5
Thinking back on Christmases I have experienced in the past and all the wonderful gifts I have been given, most of those gifts I no longer have because of time that has passed and how the item has faded, broken, or perished some other way. The gifts were great when I received them, but they aren’t made for forever.
Jesus is forever. The gift we receive in Jesus will never fade, break or perish. It is always like brand new. With Jesus, you are encouraged to regift his grace and mercy for it will never go stale.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for the wonderful gift of Jesus. I pray that I can share my gift with others and share the inheritance and the hope. Amen
Faith Tip: Share the gift of Jesus today with those you meet today.
