Jesus Our Gift

Portraits of Jesus

Romans 8:32

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift.”                                                                       2 Corinthians 9:15

Jesus wasn’t just born, He was .

“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”                                                                                                                  Romans 8:32

“For unto us a Child is born; unto us a Son is given.”                                                                        Isaiah 9:6

“For God so loved the world, that He GAVE His only begotten Son.”                                               John 3:16

Romans 8:31-35 are like an exuberant summary of Romans 5-8 and it’s as if Paul is saying, ‘Look at what God has done for us in Jesus, and is still doing, therefore Satan can never succeed.’  The proof that God is for us is that He gave us His very best on the cross.  Surely now, He will continue to give us anything else we need.

“Learn to dance and sing for joy to celebrate the victory of God. The end of Romans 8 deserves to be written in letters of fire on the living tablets of our hearts.”                                                                         -N.T. Wright
