Thursday, November 25th, 2010. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.
"A king who wished to express his affection for a private soldier of his army gave him a richly jeweled cup, his own cup. The soldier, stepping forth to receive the gift, exclaimed shamefacedly, 'This is too great a gift for me to receive.' 'It is not too great for me to give,' the king replied. God is a great giver." (Unknown)
God has given us the gift of His son, a gift some have trouble receiving because it is too great a gift for us to comprehend why He would give us something so valuable. One reason we have trouble wrapping our brain around this is that we never see such love demonstrated on earth today. The apostle John wrote this about the love of God in John 3:26:
“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”It is not for us to understand, but it is ours to give thanks to God for His gift. Let us be great in giving thanks.
"God, thank You for loving us and giving Your son Jesus as the ultimate gift.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
God You are awesome!
