God’s Gifts

We live in a broken world where the innocent are bashed upon the rocks and the church just sits there and watches it. Children starving but we are the spoiled brats who throw a fit if we don’t have air conditioning. We take most everything for granted, even our innocence. With innocence it seems that we are always willing to just throw it away.

We are supposed to be as innocent as doves and as wise as serpents but we give it all away. Our wisdom and our innocence is corrupted.

But we have one who can redeem. Who in fact died to redeem. He is the giver of innocence, since He like a lamb was led to the slaughter. He is also the giver of wisdom, since He told parables and only those the Holy Spirit chose could understand them. Jesus Christ has the power through his death and resurrection to turn us into doves, into serpents, lovers, peacemakers, givers, and all other good things.

1 Look at how great a love  the Father has given us, that we should be called God’s children. And we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it didn’t know Him. 2 Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed.  We know that when He appears, we will be like Him,  because we will see Him as He is.  3 And everyone who has this hope  in Him purifies himself just as He is pure.

(1st John 3:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Version)

Accept Jesus who died for us and loved us while we were still enemies of him and be gifted from above.
