Take It Home The Perfect Christmas Gift Day 3

Will you use the gift?

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12 ESV

Have you ever gotten a tiny package… thin… rectangular in shape. “Oh, I wonder what this is!” The gift card has become an easy solution for those more difficult names on our gift list. It’s a gift that gives you the right to walk into a particular store or restaurant and take action.

One Greek word in our verse for today is tricky to translate, here we read “he gave the right”. A deeper layer of that word is the ability to perform an action, in this case, to become the children of God. That is some gift!

Now back to the gift card…  Have you ever stuck one in a drawer and forgotten about it? Don’t burry your Perfect Christmas Gift Card! Put it into action and discover the life Jesus has in mind for you as a beloved child of God!

Reflect on having an eternal solution to your problem of sin, having access to God, having prayers heard and answered, having a place in God’s plan for the world, having a role in bringing God’s love into another life. Let God know you’re going to use His Perfect Christmas Gift Card.
