Gift of Life

Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 8:1-15 (day four)

As I write this blog, it is Tuesday, August 8, 2017.  It is our 36th anniversary…also, our second granddaughter was born today.  Jordyn Nicole made her arrival just before noon.  It is amazing!  The gift of life is absolutely amazing.  Just to sit and look at her in your arms causes an overflow of joy and gratitude!  I cannot imagine after receiving this amazing gift of life, of offering it to save someone else’s life.  Yet, that is what God did for us.  Out of His great love for us and by His limitless generosity, He gave His only Son to die in our place.  What an amazing gift!  How could He have that much love for us?

Love causes us to want to give.  Paul is encouraging the church at Corinth to think of others and give out of their supply.  Generosity grows out of a loving heart…service to others grows out of a loving heart.  From God’s richest possession, He gave to our need.  How can we do any less?

  1. Congrats to you, Mr. Soape on the birth of your granddaughter! It is truly an amazing gift of life! Thanks for sharing this great news to us!

    Where there is light, there is life; where there is love, there is life; where one’s heart overflows with love and joy, there will be celebrations of life. The gift of life is from God. Love gives hope and life!

    God gave us the gift of life. It is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well; and living well means living by grace and mercy for God’s sakes!

    By God’s grace and mercy, I hope each of us will reach out to our loved ones, to others we care about and to those in need of our help in such a way that will please God! So together, we all can celebrate God’s amazing gift of life for humanity and for His glory.

    God loves us and gave us a gift of life generously and amazingly! As believers, we will follow Him! Because He GAVE, we give! And because He GAVE, we live. We give as the heart calls for and what we can and are capable, not out of compulsion.

    Congrats again on the birth of your granddaughter, Jordyn Nicole. God is amazing! The gift of life is amazing! With God, everything is possible and life becomes amazing!
