Eye on Integrity-Jesus, the greatest gift of all

December 19th, 2018

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Isaiah 9:6.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given.”

The birth of Jesus to the world 2,000 years ago means that we were offered a gift. Jesus is God’s gift to the world to free us from the penalty of sin and to give us a new place in His family of believers. Fear of death or the future no longer has to paralyze us from enjoying life today. Eternal life is the promise of hope for everyone who receives the gift that God offered on that first Christmas morning.

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death….” That is what we deserve by our disobedient actions. But when grace enters the picture, our sins are no longer counted against us. The second part of Romans 6:23 says, “But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Receiving the gift of Jesus as Lord and Savior is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
