If Jesus had not come to save us from our sins, we would be missing out on some very important gifts that the gift of Jesus has given us if we are willing to accept them.
The first gift that God sent to us was Jesus. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Luke 11:13 "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him." Another gift that God has sent is His Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us.
James 4:6 "But He gives more grace, therefore He says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." So it pays to have a humble spirit, doesn't it because we will receive His gift of grace that He pours out in our life to give us power to obey and love Him.
James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let Him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." Do you need wisdom? Ask God for the wisdom you need and He will give it to you.
Ephesians 2:8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God." Faith is another gift from God.
I think there are so many extra gifts that God has sent us through His Son that I had better do one more post on these gifts. I think I have given you enough to think about for a while. They are such wonderful gifts that we can actually enjoy. May God bless you with these gifts. Grandma Joan
