16 Because he was full of grace and truth, from him we all received one gift after another. — John 1:16 NCV
All the blessings and gifts that we receive while we are here on earth are because Jesus was and is full of grace and truth. There is nothing we can do to earn these blessings. If we could earn them, they would not be called gifts. Every blessing and every gift is given for one purpose and one purpose only. They are to be used to further the works of the Kingdom of God. We do not need to be worried or concerned that God will run out of blessings and gifts. No matter how much He gives, there is always more to be given. As we use these blessings and gifts to further God’s work, we lay up our rewards in heaven. God has given us everything we need to live a Godly life here and has given us promises of an eternity with Him. The fulfillment of those promises is the hope that helps us to endure persecutions and to share His Divine nature while we are here on earth.
Let us be thankful for all of the blessings He pours out for us and rejoice that we can share in His goodness every day.
