God’s greatest gift is himself

Posted: March 2, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

“Here’s the bottom line: forever not only promises us blessing in the future, but it guarantees us the grace that we need in the here and now. This grace is not a set of things; it’s a person, and his name is Jesus! Understanding that God’s greatest gift is himself changes the way you live. If Christ lives inside you, not only is it impossible for you to be alone, but it is impossible for you to be left to your own resources of character, wisdom, and strength.”
