Jesus, The Gift Who Gave Us All

"A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth." (Proverbs 17: 8)

Jesus is the precious stone, the cornerstone rejected who holds all things in place for those who believe on Him:

"So honor will come to you who believe, but for the unbelieving, The stone that the builders rejected-- this One has become the cornerstone," (1 Peter 2: 7)


"15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." (Colossians 1: 15-17)

Jesus is the gift which God gave to the entire world (John 3: 16), and for those who have believed on Him, Christ Jesus invites us to keep receiving from Him:

"For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ." (Romans 5: 17)

Because Jesus is all things for us, since He made all things, and all things are made for Him, and without Him nothing was made, we can trust that through Him we receive all things:

"31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us." (Romans 8: 31-34)

This Christmas Day, celebrate that Jesus gave everything that we might receive everything through Him, and that He wants us to keep receiving from Him every day!
