Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional March 1 2021 – Gift Giving
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:15
Recommended Reading: Matthew 7:7-12
One thing that parents often struggle with is giving their children gifts that not only give joy but will also last beyond a short season in their lives. Even something worthwhile, like a book, is designed for a specific reading level and age, so it will soon lose its value in the life of a child. Along with the desire to give something that will last, part of the joy is seeing the delight of their children when they receive the gift—and that is true of the gift God has given us as well. And His gift is “indescribable”!
The Bible says that our Heavenly Father gives us the gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23); the gift of salvation by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8); and the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). James said, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights” (James 1:17). Romans 4:17 says, He “gives life to the dead,” and Romans 8:11 promises life to our mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells within us.
We serve a kind and gracious God who gives us good gifts, and the most indescribable is Jesus Christ Himself!
We can bring our little vessels to the spring and take them away filled to overflowing, and the exceeding abundance remains.
J. H. Jowett
