The Unopened Gift

26 Dec

Today Christmas as a holiday is over. However, the good news is that the gift God gave us that first Christmas morning is eternal. Think of how lonely and awkward an unopened gift is under a tree the day after Christmas. Through His shed blood Jesus has offered to us the greatest gift of eternal life. (Romans 6:23) If we repent of our sins and commit our lives to Jesus we shall be born again! 
Romans 10:9 says “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Confession with your mouth isn’t simple lip service. It is wholehearted dedication and devotion to Jesus as Lord. 
God did not send His Son into this world for us to celebrate in yearly festivities. Nor did He send His Son to be recognized once a week in a church service. That equates to religion. God did not give to us the gift of religion-He gave us the gift of relationship. Relationship with Him through His Son Jesus. Jesus said in John 17:3, “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” 
God’s gift is no longer laying beneath the tree-the cross of Calvary. He has risen! He is now awaiting a relationship. A relationship with you! So ask yourself, have you simply recognized Jesus in your life? Or do you have relationship with Him? There is a major difference in the two. Don’t allow God’s gift to go unopened. Turn to Him, call upon His name, and commit your life totally unto Him. He is waiting!Image
