Bullis made an interesting point in his message for today.
Usually when we are given a gift, we are excited to unwrap it and we do so with great anticipation and excitement. But, depending on our expectation, we can be delighted, disappointed, thrilled – or even angered by the gift.
But when we are given the gift of Jesus and his atoning for our sins, Jesus is not the one unwrapped. We are. All of the layers of sin, insulation and protection from the world that we have built around ourselves begin to loosen and fall away.
If we accept the gift of Jesus, eventually we become completely unwrapped and our true self is revealed to Him.
And He always loves what he finds.
