And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors.”
Even in death, Jesus had the power to make people right with God. Do you realize the magnitude of so great a gift? If you are saved, do you really understand what it is God did for you in and through the Messiah?
If you’ve experienced God’s gift of Jesus, what are you doing with it? If you have received a gift, that makes you its steward. A steward is one who realizes that all she or he has been given is from God and is God’s. You stand with your hands together and extended with palms up and you say to God, “All I have and all I am is Yours and I give it all back to You for Your glory.”
How will you bless God with your life? How will you be a blessing to others? God has given us His Son. Our lives are changed and out of what He has done for us, we overflow with gratitude that can be expressed in furthering His Kingdom for His glory, not for ours.
How will you give back to God not only at Christmas, but all year?
