We all get excited when we think of someone giving us a gift. A gift is something we give to show love, friendship, make a person laugh or to give comfort.
The words gift or gifts appear in the Scripture approximately 65 times. It describes many kinds of gifts. Some are good, some helpful, some needful, some interesting and some are expensive.
Scripture says we have been given spiritual gifts for the work of the ministry of Christ. We have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit, the gift of justification, the gift of salvation, the gift of eternal life, and the gift of grace. But the best gift of all is the gift of Jesus Christ.
Give the gift of praise and thanksgiving to God for His Gift of Gifts.
“Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift” (2 Corinthians 9:15).
