Wednesday's Word - Presents Under the Tree

As you pass by the Christmas tree with it’s bevy of brightly colored packages adorned with ribbons and bows, there’s a one with your name on it. Do you know what’s in it? Is the suspense increasing as Christmas morning draws nigh?
As Christians, you’ve been given a special gift called Salvation. And as wonderful as it is, it’s comparable to the brightly colored package…what’s in it? What did you get when you got saved? Well, I’m glad you asked, so I made a list:

The Spirit of Adoption - Romans 8:15
The Grace of God - 1 Peter 4:10
The Holy Spirit – 1 Thessalonians 4:8
Forgiveness of sins – Acts 26:18
Joy – John 17-13
Redemption - Ephesians 1:7
Fellowship in the Gospel – Philippians 1:5
Sainthood – Colossians 1:12
Ministry of Reconciliation - 2 Corinthians 5:18
New Birth 1 Peter 1:23
Heavenly Citizenship - Philippians 3:20 (NIV)
Heirs with Christ – Romans 8:17
Direct Access through Prayer – James 5:16
Eternal Security – Romans 8:39
Not, last nor least…. the present of the Presence to come

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

I made this list, but didn’t check it twice (haa….haa….) so feel free to respond with your own additions to the list.

Lest we forget that these presents were purchased at great cost, here’s the word:
Galatians 3:13
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:


Have a Joyous Jesus’ Birthday,
Cros
