The gift of receiving

I heard someone say recently that “It’s about receiving – going to the feet of Jesus when you are about to lose it. It’s not about giving, it’s about receiving.”

In a season when so many are focused on getting the right gift, wouldn’t it be a blessing to remember to receive Jesus’ gift to us? The best gift of all was given already, it is just a matter of us receiving it.

In John 3:16, we are told, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”

In the next post I’ll continue with the idea of receiving gifts.
