When was the last time you gave a gift to a loved one expecting a payment in return? Probably never because if you receive payment for a gift, it ceases to be a gift!
The Oxford English Dictionary defines a gift as “something bestowed voluntarily and without compensation.” People give Christmas gifts to show their love. They find out what would make a friend or family member happy and take time to shop for the right present. And the smile on their loved one’s face makes the effort and money spent worth it!
Likewise, God’s gift of salvation has been freely given. We can’t earn it and He doesn’t expect payment for it. God wrapped His indescribable gift in eternity, equality, deity, and humility. Open it today!
