Accepting The Ultimate Gift

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

From the post “Joyfully Take Possession of What God has Given” written about were some lessons in seizing every opportunity to accept and use the gifts God has given. The Israelites were given land as an inheritance. We may not receive land but we are given the Holy Spirit if we accept Christ in our heart. We can then use our talents and ideas to glorify God.

If tempted to hold back, have the attitude of ownership in all that you do because God has given the ultimate gift in Christ. The scripture above and the song Proof of Your Love – For King & Country reminds us that the love that flows in us flows freely without any inhibitions.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
