THREE GIFTS FROM GOD ;
(God’s Eternal Life, Righteousness And His Holy Spirit)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
TO THE BIBLE
2 Peter 1:3 “…His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue”
◀️ LET’S TALK
There’re three important gifts of God in Christ Jesus, given to us through the Gospel. These are the gift of eternal life, the gift of righteousness, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Romans 6:23 tells us that, “…the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Eternal life is the God-life given to you when you are born again.
This life isn’t the same as the human life; it’s the very life of God. There’s no way you could work hard enough or pay any price to attain eternal life; it’s a gift from God. Without eternal life, you won’t have the same nature with God; there’ll be no fellowship, and therefore no relationship.
Righteousness is the second gift. Romans 5:17 says, Righteousness is the nature of God that describes His rightness: It’s His nature and ability to always be right. He’s never wrong; and when He imparts that nature and ability to your spirit, you can walk in consistency with His will and please Him with your life, and you can stand in His presence without a sense of condemnation, inferiority or guilt.
The Holy Spirit is also God’s gift to us (Acts 2:38). The Holy Spirit is God at work in us. As a Christian, you need the Holy Spirit to live victoriously in Christ (John 14:16).
The Holy Spirit came to help you live the Christian life: He gives you the understanding of God’s Word, awakens you to the fatherhood of God, and reveals the Father’s will to you and through you. The Holy Spirit gives you supernatural abilities to glorify God, and boldness to make Jesus Christ known to your world.
These three gifts are very important to us as Christians, because they represent the fulfilment of God’s will and purpose in Christ Jesus. Study the Word and learn more about them.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Romans 5:17; 1 John 5:11-12
I thank you Lord for blessing me with the gifts of eternal life, righteousness, and the Holy Spirit. I’m conscious of these gifts at work in me; I know I can do all things, through Christ that strengthens me. Hallelujah!
