The value of The Gift is in the value it has to the one who receives it. If a gift has little value to the receiver sooner or later it will be of little or no value at all. If we allow the value of The Gift to grow, Life itself is forever altered and Gratitude becomes a constant reality. The choice is really all up to the one who receives the gift.
“He will be delivered over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him and spit on him; they will flog him and kill him. On the third day he will rise again.” – Luke 18:32-33
The reason so few want to follow Christianity is that they have met too many Christians. Too many Christians who are NOT about the Wholeness of The Gift but instead are All about the ritual and law of a man made religion.
The original meaning of “Christianity” was literally “little Christ” – today sadly it means “knock off religion” – to find out what it means to be “little Christ” look at BIG CHRIST! He Loved enough to be delivered to the Gentile, He Loved enough to be mocked, He Loved enough to be insulted, He Loved enough to me flogged, beaten and crucified and Still be “the end of the law” for us come back to life to defeat death and give us Freedom that Only He could give!
Religious Christianity will cheapen this LOVE and say it’s not enough, I have to do more, my salvation and my life are in my hands.
Grace says, “I am sufficient for you, His Love is All you need and your Faith in Him has healed you. You are no longer under the law, you are under Grace.”
