Share the Gift

…others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else…Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:13b & 15

I always smile when I think about that Mother’s Day weekend when my husband’s aunt and uncle came to visit. Our kids were still small so we had not really established any of our own Mother’s Day traditions yet.

In honor of that day my husband bought me a corsage. He presented it to me as I got dressed. I tried to get it pinned on, but decided to ask his aunt to help me. As I went in to the guest bedroom to ask for her help she exclaimed, “OH! Is that for ME?!?

What I could I do? I said yes and proceeded to pin it on her dress instead of my own.

She wore my corsage to church as proudly as ever, Even though it perturbed my husband a bit at first, we got to experience her joy as she wore it. It brought new meaning to the old saying, “some gifts are made to be shared.”

Salvation is one of those gifts. God did not intend for me to keep it to myself. When I tell others about my salvation and if they too come to believe in Jesus as their Savior, I get to experience the joy of new believers. I get to watch them “wear” it so to speak.

Just as I was a little doubtful about sharing my corsage with my husband’s aunt; I can also be timid when it comes to sharing my salvation story with others. I would never want to withhold the eternal joy of salvation from anyone by not sharing it with them.

God’s gift of salvation is “indescribable.” It is the gift which must be shared time and time again. No one should be denied the opportunity to accept His gift because they did not hear about it.

God, thank you for the gift of salvation. Thank you for the privilege of sharing it with others. Help me to do so boldly.
