I look into his hideous face as I survey the confusion around me and I remind the prince of this temporal world that I am sealed, yes indeed, my salvation is sealed by the reminder of the Holy Spirit. I am protected from eternal damnation because of the gift.
The gift causes me to want to live obedient, sold out and enslaved to the gift giver. The one and only one who could have done all of this just for me. Oh, how precious I feel to be given His grace.
Thank you for the gift. This wonderful seed of hope sealed in my heart, waiting to blossom on the other side of this present life into an eternal life of peace.
But, I cannot let the gift remain encased in the walls of my being. I must pass this gift on to those that the gift giver has destined to come into my path. There are empty spirits, troubled lives and void minds all around me in need of lasting hope. Hope that will take the place of the temporal fixes that bring pleasure but no peace, happiness but no joy, numbness but no relief from rooted pain, distraction but no escape from the reality that death will one day come.
The gift that was given to me by grace, despite my unworthy case can help all mankind. Dare I not plant the gift into the fallow grounds of needy hearts in the world, in my community, in my family...in my house.
Who will I bring to eternity? In whose ground will I plant the seed of hope? With whom will I share the gift?
