Ye Shall Receive
Acts 2:38 (KJV) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
The gift of God is unlike any other present available in this world. In fact, the truth is that no other can measure up to the gift of God. Try as you might, giving your family and friends the most popular devices, money, household must-haves, and fancy electronic gadgets will undoubtedly engage their interests for a time. However, in the long run, their short-lived enthusiasm and interest will move on to bigger and better world-based items.
There is just one precious gift that lasts forever. It is the salvation of the heart given by God. Sadly, many families are not familiar with this valuable heart-changing gift. This present is available to all without controversy. However, upon reception of it, God sets expectations for quickened alive souls by the leading of the desires and direction of God at work in their heart and mind to put off sin and to repent from the things of this world and to choose to walk with God.
I hope you know that any person, or whosoever, can receive this vital gift of God. However, many souls are more enthused about earthly treasures and gifts rather than receiving lasting truth, mercy, and grace only available from God. This year, Christian, introduce seeds of the gospel message to everyone that you encounter in this holiday season and give souls the gift of life and hope to all willing receive it.
