Will you open your heart to His gifts? By Megan Bailey belief.net
Each year, families spend hundreds of dollars picking out the best Christmas gifts to give each other. We scour the internet for the best deals and latest gadgets so that we can give our friends the best presents we can find. But while we are busy planning, shopping, wrapping, and sending gifts – God is too.
There are gifts from Christ that every Christian can be open, to receiving all year round. No matter what is or is not under your Christmas tree this year, you can take comfort in knowing that God offers you lifelong gifts that are more fulfilling than anything we could have ever bought ourselves. Each gift comes specially wrapped in love – all you have to do is ask! Revelation 22:17 says “The Holy Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And the person who hears should say, ‘Come!’ Anyone who is thirsty should come. Anyone who wants to take the free gift of the water of life should do so.” Here are the six gifts that God has for you to open this Christmas season.
John 14:27 shares with us the promise of God’s gift of peace. The scripture reads “Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.” This is reinforced in Psalm 37:11 that says, “But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” God never promises us that life will be easy and only full of sunshine and rainbows. However, He does promise to be our support system. When we cast our worldly anxieties and stresses onto Him, we are overfilled with a feeling of peace, calm, and gratefulness.
