Precious Gift

1 Thessalonians 5:4-10 (AMPC)
4 But you are not in [given up to the power of] darkness, brethren,
for that day to overtake you by surprise like a thief.
5 For you are all sons and daughters of light and sons of the day;
we do not belong either to the night or to darkness.

6 Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, . . .

8 But we belong to the day;

therefore, let us be sober and put on the breastplate (corslet)
of faith and love and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

9 For God has not appointed us to [incur His] wrath
[He did not select us to condemn us], but
[that we might] obtain [His] salvation
through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)
10 Who died for us
so that whether we are still alive or are dead
[at Christ’s appearing], we might live together with Him and share His life.


As Jesus followers we are children of the light, we see truth. We follow what Jesus, the Son of God taught. We accept His enormous gift to us; He sacrificed His life in an ignominious death of excruciating pain and suffering on the cross to pay off our sin debt, so that we may live a life full and victorious in Him; now our death is a mere passing through a door into an eternity in heaven with Him. This is the light that illuminates our path in life. What a precious gift!!


When we accept the gift Jesus offers, our sins are cleansed away, no matter how big or bad they were. In accepting Jesus gift, His love causes us to repent of our wrongdoings and move on to living our life with Christ as our Lord. He will send us the Holy Spirit to indwell us as our coach, mentor, counselor, comforter, guide to lead us through each level of our days. Living with Him is a challenging and rewarding time.



You see, God knows us intimately just what we need, just who we are, and He accepts us for who we are. He gently leads us through each day helping us to grow into our full potential.

1 Thessalonians 1:10 (AMP)
 and to [look forward and confidently]
wait for [the coming of]
His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead—Jesus,
who [personally] rescues us from the coming wrath
[and draws us to Himself,
granting us all the privileges and rewards of a new life with Him].



Going through life with God accepting His truth, accepting His Son, humbly submitting to His commands, brings joy into our days and death will hold no fear, because we know with certainty that Jesus conquered death, and we will pass through death’s door right into Jesus arms; eternity with Him is assured. Dear ones, hear me now! None of us know the timing for our own demise, so the best way to live is in truth. Jesus is our Savior and accepting Him and living with Him as Lord of our life will bring the peace of assurance that we will live eternally in joy with God.

1 Corinthians 15:54-58 (MSG)
Death swallowed by triumphant Life!
Who got the last word, oh, Death?
Oh, Death, who’s afraid of you now?


It was sin that made death so frightening
and law-code guilt that gave sin its leverage,
its destructive power.
But now in a single victorious stroke of Life,
all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone,
the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God!



58 With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends,
stand your ground. And don’t hold back. . .
God loves us so much! He created us so we might live and grow to love Him too. He has done everything necessary for that to be reality. Paradise was created for us until Adam betrayed God’s love choosing to believe satan instead. God fixed it by sending Jesus, as God-man. to redeem us. We can now move forward in building a beautiful relationship with God Himself. Accept this precious gift! Choose life not death! It’s there waiting for us all!!
Just tell Jesus you want Him to be Lord of your life and ask Him to come into your heart now.
