God is gracious. God is eternal. God is eternally gracious, there is no end to His desire to give gifts.
People are given the option of receiving these gifts or rejecting them. Most reject them, as denoted by the road to destruction being broad. The world does a good job of looking like it’s better than all God’s gracious gifts. The many choose temporal gifts in exchange for eternal gifts.
Perhaps this decision doesn’t look that bad until eternity starts.
God, as the giver, offers gifts to people. People then can become receivers. Here is a list of all that we can receive from God:
Romans 1:5—grace and apostleship
Romans 5:17—abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness
Romans 8:15—the spirit of adoption
1 Corinthians 2:12—The Spirit of God
1 Corinthians 3:14—reward for his work
1 Corinthians 15:1—the Gospel
2 Corinthians 4:1—mercy
Galatians 3:14—the promise of the Spirit
Galatians 4:5—the adoption of sons
Ephesians 6:8—good things
Colossians 2:6—Christ Jesus the Lord
Colossians 3:24—the reward of the inheritance
1 Thessalonians 4:1—how to walk and please God
Hebrews 9:15—the promise of eternal inheritance
Hebrews 10:36—the promise
1 Peter 4:10—the gift
A fine looking receipt!
Oh the tragedy of man who chooses temporal dirt over all this.
