God the GIVER

July 2

(John 3:16 NIV) ""For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

(1 John 5:11 NIV) "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son."

(2 Corinthians 9:14-15 NIV) "And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. {15} Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"

Scripture says, “God so loved the world that he gave.” As we consider the attributes of God, we must not forget that God is giving. God the Giver overwhelms us with His love. If one considers who God is, and then ponders who we are, the extent of His generosity to us is staggering. God gives us wisdom, strength, light, victory, blessing, rest, grace, mercy, and life eternal. Best of all, He gives us Jesus and His Holy Spirit. God the Giver does not just give us gifts for this world. He gives us gifts that are out of this world -- gifts that will last for eternity. We can never out-give God. Jesus is truly, "The Gift that keeps on giving". What a great God we have. Have you received God’s gift of forgiveness and salvation? Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior? No one in their right mind would turn down a Gift like this. Believe and receive! -- Friar Tuck’s Word of the Day
