The Gift of Oneself


Ephesians 5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

As I was starting to make this post, another bookmark was asking for my attention. And this is the verse written on it. OUR GOD IS A GOD OF ORDER AND PERFECT TIMING!

The greatest gift we could ever give to someone is the gift of ourselves.

Ever thought why GOD gave JESUS CHRIST to us? Because the greatest gift can only seen by the sacrifice of Oneself in order to save mankind. GOD, JESUS CHRIST AND HOLY SPIRIT - the Holy Trinity - GOD loves us so much that HE gave HIMSELF who is JESUS CHRIST!

Church membership, good deeds or the ten commandments can never save you. JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE AND THE SALVATION!

John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

As a believer, are you contented that only you have that Salvation? Look around you.

A grumpy old woman, a prostitute, a thief, a poor old man in the street, a prisoner, a widow, an orphan, a drug addict, a pregnant teen, a hurting friend, a mentally retarded, an ornery child, an abusive parent, a Cancer patient, a smoker, a drunkard and many other more...they need the WORD! They need the TRUTH! Who do you expect to share the GOSPEL to them? If you hunger and thirst for GOD, they also do. It is when we lose ourselves that we live for GOD's glory.

GIVE A GIFT. GIVE YOURSELF TO SOMEONE TODAY (SPIRITUALLY).

GOD'S WISDOM AND DISCERNMENT BE UPON YOU! BE SPIRITUAL. DO NOT BE TOO LITERAL WITH THE WORD OF GOD. ASK FOR GOD'S GREATER WISDOM EACH DAY. HE WILL NOT BE SELFISH TO YOU. OUR GOD IS A GRACIOUS GOD THAT IS WHY HE HAS GIVEN US THE GIFT OF HIMSELF!

Get it? Got it? GOOD!!! hehehe!

Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale.

ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO GOD ALONE!!!

P.U.S.H.

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU - NO IF'S, NO AND'S, NO BUT'S!

When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!

Amen! This is a very powerful message. One that feels like it was meant for me. I so needed this one, along with everything else I received tonight. Our God is such an all loving, patient God. Oh how I so want to be just like Him. Thank you dear sweet sister in Christ for being so obedient, and sharing His great word, and putting perspective into it all. God Bless You Always, and Always P.U.S.H.
