Gifts From The Greatest Giver
Christmas Slide Guide, December 20, 2015
1. God Himself
John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave (us His best gift ever) His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” KJV
John 1:12- “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name…” NASU
This is the gift we are to tell others about, this gift that every person needs and that God is waiting to give to ‘as many as will receive Him…receive the gift of God Himself into their life!
2. A New House
John 14:1-2- “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” NKJV
The Bible speaks not only of us having a dwelling place in the New Jerusalem, the capitol city of the New Earth, but also of us having many dwelling places, since we will be given various service assignments all over the New Earth and no doubt in the regions of the New Heavens.
3. A New Body
God has given us His promise that He is going to give each of us a new body that will be so amazing that it will take eternity to discover all the potential talents and abilities we will get enjoy in using our new body.
Our bodies will exist in eternal ultimate health.
There will be no natural or supernatural disasters; No cancer, heart disease, diabetes, violence, accidents — or death.
4. A New Life
2 Cor 5:17- “…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
Col 3:1-4- “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all His glory.”
Titus 3:4-8- “When God our Savior revealed His kindness and love, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of His grace He declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.”
1 Peter 1:23-24- “For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.”
Rom 6:13-14- “…you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.” NLT
‘I am an instrument of God’s to do what is right for the glory of God.’
That’s how we can make God’s gifts to us keep on giving through us.
