This to those who Love Jesus and yearn to be even closer in Him.
The Gift Christ is the revelation to the seeker of truth that they have found Him. They have found the Truth wrapped up in a mysterious veil. The mystery Of the Gift is to activate the revelation so it becomes the manifestation.
The Gift of Christ is the manifestation of the revelation in and around our life. When we find the Gift Christ we become new. Our old ways are not our new ways. Our thoughts are refreshed with the good things of The Gospel of Christ. The Gift of Christ is what we offer to others as a bridge to God. WE being the bridge others cross to be led to salvation, healing, and deliverance through and by The power of God according to His will.
The Gift Christ is the sacrifice of Himself for the world. The gift of Christ is the outward expression by a believer of what Christ did for them. It is an invitation extended to the world through The Love of God to all for the purpose of salvation through Christ and triumphant Christian living on earth through Love to all even the stranger.
Jared, as I read your article I kept thinking about how Jesus' sacrifice was truly a gift and not something we can ever earn. Thanks so much for this wonderful column.
May God continue to bless your writing.
