The Gift of Christmas
Drake was thrown in jail for disrupting the peace and for stealing Dewberry’s lights.
But Brother Jim paid Drake’s bail.
Did Drake deserve to be free?
Romans 6:23 says that the wages (what we deserve) for our sin is death. But the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
What do we deserve when we sin?
What does God give us instead?
None of us deserve the gift of Christmas. God gave us His son because He loved us so much.
No one can earn that kind of love.
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
(Ephesians 2:8 NLT)
Have you accepted God’s gift of grace?
How can we tell others about the gift of God’s grace this week?
