Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,
(Hebrews 12:28 (NIV))
This passage reminded me that we all too often seem to forget the greatness of the gift that we have been given!
We are not worthy of the gift.
We did not earn the right to claim the gift.
We could never attain such a gift on our own merit, yet, it is ours free and clear!
Why, then, with such a great gift freely given to all who would ask, do we act like it is something to take for granted? Why do we act as if it is worth nothing? Why do we not seek to share this great gift with all whom we see?
Human nature is a strange thing. We make such a great big fuss over things that are so trivial and we make them out to be the greatest thing that ever was. The thing that truly is the greatest thing that ever was is the gift the God freely gives to all who will accept it. It is this gift that we make out to be worth little or nothing!
I am so glad that God has not revoked this gift of grace because of the way that we treat it!
I am so glad that we serve a loving God.
Aren’t you glad that God is not bound to human frailties and feelings. I know that most people who give great gifts would be offended if we treated their gift the way that we treat the gift that God has given each of us.
Do you truly realize the greatness of God’s gift?
