The Priceless Gift That Love Bought
Chosen by God!
While this gift from God is free to us, it did cost Him something.
“Abba Father, how did you do it? How did you watch Your Son die when you had the power to save Him?”
“Then this thought came:”
“I know You were thinking about us, but it still had to be difficult to watch Him suffer. Our initial disobedience caused You to have Your Son die for us. Oh what a love!!!”
“Then I got to thinking about His love and remembered that love, real love – sacrificial love, only happens when we're connected to the Holy Spirit.”
"The trip that Jesus took to Calvary was planned before the very foundations of the world. God always had a plan to redeem us. When Jesus came to earth, everything He did, everything He said, was done with Calvary on His mind. “
“Even knowing what He would suffer, by taking on the sins of the world, Jesus still chose to suffer the penalty of our sin for us. He had us – you and I – on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had doing the will and purpose of His Father on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had defeating sin and death on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had resurrection on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had victory on His mind as He prepared for Calvary.” (Holy Week Devotional by Leisa Wilkins; http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UFVK0B8?keywords=leisa%20wilkins&qid=1457113170&ref_=sr_1_1&s=digital-text&sr=1-1)
God provided gifts through Jesus.
All we have to do is walk in them through faith.
In light of all of this, how will you use your inheritance?
I leave you to ponder this:
Galatians 6:4-5 MSG “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.”
Your inheritance is not just for you but for the good of others. Now that you know you have this inheritance, who are you going to share them with?
Be Encouraged! ❤
