GOD’S GREATEST GIFT TO YOU

INTRODUCTION: THIS STUDY ADDRESSES GOD’S GIFT GIVING OPPOSED TO MAN’S CONCEPT OF GIFT GIVING.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT PROVERBS 18: 16 (NKJV) A MAN’S GIFT MAKES ROOM FOR HIM AND BRINGS HIM BEFORE GREAT MEN.

PROVERBS 19:6 (NKJV) MANY ENTREAT THE FAVOR OF THE NOBILITY, AND EVERY MAN IS A FRIEND TO ONE WHO GIVES GIFTS.

GIFT GIVING WAS COMMON IN EASTERN CULTURE REGARDLESS OF THE MOTIVE BEHIND THE GIFT. SOME AUTHORS SUGGEST THE PURPOSE WAS SIMPLY BRIBERY. OTHERS SUGGEST IT WAS SIMPLY A PLOY TO AT LEAST GET A COURT HEARING TO FIND FAVOR.

CONSIDER GOD’S GIFT TO THE WORLD.

CONSIDER THE MAGI WHO BROUGHT GIFTS OF GOLD, FRANKINCENSE AND MYRRH TO CHRIST, THE NEWBORN KING OF BETHLEHEM (MATTHEW 2:1-11). THEY ENTERED THE HOUSE OF JOSEPH AND MARY, HIS MOTHER, FELL ON THEIR KNEES AND WORSHIPED THE CHRIST CHILD. THEY RECOGNIZED GOD’S GIFT TO THE WORLD!

CHRIST REVEALED HIMSELF TO A SAMARITAN WOMAN AT A WELL. JOHN 4:10 (NKJV) JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID TO HER, IF YOU KNEW THE GIFT OF GOD, AND WHO IT IS WHO SAYS TO YOU, GIVE ME A DRINK, YOU WOULD HAVE ASKED HIM, AND HE WOULD HAVE GIVEN YOU LIVING WATER.

LIVING WATER COMES FROM AN UNFAILING SOURCE, JESUS CHRIST. THAT SOURCE ASSURES YOU OF ETERNAL LIFE. HE IS THE GIFT FROM GOD TO YOU!

2 CORINTHIANS 9:15 (NKJV) THANKS BE TO GOD FOR HIS INDESCRIBABLE GIFT!

APPLICATION: THANK GOD DAILY FOR HIS INDESCRIBABLE GIFT, JESUS CHRIST!
