Do you have God’s presence or just presents from the god of this world as you celebrate Christmas today?
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 KJV)
Sadly, for many, this day December 25th is all about an abundance of earthly presents but God has a spiritual presence. A perfect holy gift in mind for all mankind. His gift is priceless, eternal, and spiritually perfect. This gift brings about life for any man who through faith will accept it.
Today, on this day set aside to celebrate His virgin birth, take some time to reflect upon the eternal gift of God. It is the only gift that will last forever. The other gifts you have received today will perish as this world comes winding down to a fiery end or you leave them behind in the advent of your own physical death some unknown day soon, according to the will of God, for your life.
The gift of God will stand forevermore standing the test of time and fire at the end of the world as we know it today. You and I naturally deserve the wages of our sin. The Bible tells us in many other verses that “the wages of sin is death…”, but God did not inspire the writer of Romans to place a period after this statement he instructed Paul to place a semicolon. God had more depth of His Truth to add to the context of this scripture verse. God has a gift. This is no ordinary gift but a spiritual gift of eternal life for whosoever will accept it through faith.
