1 Peter 1-5 Salvation is our greatest gift
Christmas is almost upon us, and with it, the spending spree! Americans are no longer satisfied with just an orange and a new pair of socks. No! We want the biggest and the best gift we can find, whether within our budget or not. How different our Christmas is today from yesteryear. Peter probably never celebrated Christmas as we know it, but he certainly knew about gifts. In his letter to the dispersion, he writes about the most incredible gift any believer can receive, being chosen by the foreknowledge of God. “By his great mercy he gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” [1 Peter 1:2]
As you wander through the maze of shoppers, stop and gaze at their countenances. Are they happy? Are they satisfied? Most are not because they do not have this assurance that it will only be opened on Christmas morning but every morning from now until eternity.
Stop and ponder that gift and spend time thanking God for His wonderful gift that will outlast any Christmas!
