MORNINGTIME 3691 

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. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17. The first, and greatest Gift that God ever gave man, is the Gift of Life, the Gift of physically being born into a beautiful physical world for us to enjoy. (We're not talking about sin and its results here). This world is halfway between Heaven and Hell, meaning, you have the Gift of Life with enough Blessings, and enough Troubles to get a "feel" for Heaven and Hell. Because of Sin, we're all destined for Hell. (Hint; if you were never born, you would never need Christ). Having this First Gift of Life you IMMEDIATELY need the second Greatest Gift called Salvation through Jesus Christ and into Life Everlasting. With both Gifts, you're on your Way towards Heaven to be with Christ Forever. Salvation opens the Door FOR YOU to be In Christ, but does nothing for anyone else until you Share Christ with others and THEY decide to Follow Christ also. Yes, the Holy Spirit calls each person to Christ, but your Obedience to Share the Gospel with others is One Way He talks to those others. Not the only way, but A way. So, Blessed Ones with the Everlasting Gift of Eternal Life, SHARE THAT GIFT WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN, and "help" the Holy Spirit, (c'mon now, read the intent here), bring others into Christ also. There is a Beauty in Christ that all the ugliness of this sinful world can't touch. Only those who ABSOLUTELY REFUSE the Calling of the Holy Spirit, (and ALL will be called), will miss God's Second Greatest Gift to ALL of mankind. Encourage everyone TO Christ, or further INTO Christ, either Way, Be CHRISTLIKE and show them the Beauty you have found In Him. We only go through this life once, so share Christ, share Life with a dead and dying world that eventually EVERYONE will hear the Gospel, and, Be Blessed.
