SHORT THOUGHTS: Everyone in the world been given a priceless gift. Jesus loved and loves us so much, that He willing left His place in heaven, came to earth and gave His life in our place to restore our broken relationship and give us all a way back to His Father. He died in our place to make this bridge because there was no way we could do it on our own.
This gift is not something any of us can earn, buy or trade for but rather, it is something we acknowledge in our hearts and accept in humility and gratitude when we realize what has been done for us. It is simply...a gift of love...sitting in front of us all, waiting to be opened and waiting to give us a purpose. But as always, the choice is always ours.

Ephesians 2:8-10 (NIV)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
