THE FREE GIFT
God has blessed us in so many ways. He has given us the free gift of salvation. We cannot earn it, nor do we deserve it. It flows from the heart of God. He gives a marvelous gift to those who have accepted Him as Lord and Savior. We receive gifts that we view as priceless; however, there is no comparable gift for the one God gives to His people. Revelations 22:7 is our devotional reference today.
“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed are those who obey the words of prophecy written in this book.”
In this passage, the writer is aware of this marvelous free gift. Behold, I am coming soon. The second event was near or at hand. This gift is given to those who are prepared for Christ’s second coming. The Lord, Jesus, keeps His Word. “Then the angel said to me, ‘Everything you have heard and seen is trustworthy and true. The Lord God, who inspires His prophets, has sent His angel to tell His servants what will happen soon.’” Blessed are those who heed the prophecy in this book. Those of us who have come to know the Lord understand that He promised He would return. We know not when or the hour. However, when He returns, we will be blessed with His appearance. Prayerfully, you are embracing all the wonderful gifts that God has given to you. He will return, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, love us and never let us go. These gifts can never be compared to what God gives. Thank God for His great and glorious gifts.
