Good morning! Good morning! Good morning! “It is a day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” There is an old song that says, “Every Day with Jesus is Sweeter than the Day Before”. I wonder sometimes why that is true and I’ve come to the conclusion that if I learn a little bit more about Jesus and His character and His love for me that each day does get a little more sweeter.
In a few days my wife will be celebrating her birthday and I might add she gets sweeter each day, (now that ought to get me in good with her).
I’ve been contemplating on what to get her for her birthday. Today I was reading in Ephesians 1:11 in the LBT and it reads, “11a Moreover, because of what Christ has done, we have become gifts to God that he delights in &,” that verse reminded me of 2 things today: that truly Blanche was and is a gift from God to me. He knew what I needed and what I wanted and He put it all in one beautiful package.
Next I realized that Paul was telling the Christians in Ephesus that they were a gift to God from Jesus Christ. Jesus had purchased them with His blood and He gives them to the Father. Did you ever think of yourself as a gift? Let’s all try to be gifts that will please God.
This is Bro. Shep asking you to think about it.
