2000 years ago, God put a gift on a tree, a cross. (Eph. 4:8, Matt. 7:11, Eph. 1:3)
God has given us a gift according to His wealth (Rom. 8:31). He’s given us His best gift, life through His Son.
-He’s rescued us (Eph. 2:8-9, from the penalty of sins (Col. 2:13, Rom. 8:1), from the power of sin (Rom. 6:18) and the presence of sin (Heb. 9:28)
-He’s provided justification (Job 25:4, Rom. 3:20) We are declared right before God.
-He gives us a life of meaning (John 10:10). Jesus adds a wonderful dimension, purpose and joy to life. We know where we’re going.
-He gives us eternal life and a new body.
What can I give to Jesus on His b. 6, 12:1, 2 Tim. 2:15,
