God’s Remarkable Gift

I have an editor. This is a milestone for me as a writer. For years I have prayed that God would provide a person who could not only strengthen my sentences, rework my grammar and improve my vocabulary but one who would also be able to identify weak theological arguments in my work.

After talking today we have established a partnership and working arrangement. My editor understands my goals for writing, and her edits have made me stronger as a writer. She shares my goals, and, as a result, I trust her explicitly with my work. I look forward to her questions, changes and remarks.

Even more amazing is God’s remarkable gift of Jesus Christ. I have a Savior. And He has changed everything for me, a sinner. Just when sin was ready to strangle me, my Savior showed me the truth of His atoning cross and offered me salvation. Too weak to conquer sin on my own, He sent His Holy Spirit to destroy sin and reconcile me to God. If I grow complacent of my sinful ways, my Savior convicts me of sin, brings me to repentance and offers me forgiveness. I trust Him and He knows me full well. “O Lord, you have searched me and you know me” (Psalm 139:1).

My Savior, through the power of the Holy Spirit, instructs me in the ways of righteousness, encourages me to lead an obedient life and emboldens me to live faithfully to God.
