The Gift That Counts ( by Fenny West)

The Gift That Counts

The Gift that Counts.

Is the gift that costs.

 

birth of Jesus2

Give Him your trust

If you will not rust.

 

son of God became man

Give Him your life

If you will have life.

Give Him your interest

If you will increase

 

Give Him your first

If you will not be last.

 

Give Him your future

If you want it assured.

 

Give Him your relationships

If you want a good fellowship.

 

Give Him preeminent place

If you want superabundant grace.

 

Give Him your seed

If you want to succeed.

 

Give Him your time

If you want multiplied time.

 

Lead someone to Christ

as a disciple of Christ.

Give the gift that costs

For it to be a gift that counts.

 

 

crdaniel

Seek His Kingdom first

And all other things

Will be added to you.

 

in Christ what have and are

The gospel is free but it cost God the blood of His Son.

Paul spent and was spent for God.

David could not give God what was cheap.

Is there anything you cannot give to God?

Give your best to God in all you do and it will come back to you, good measure, shaken together, pressed down and running over.

23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.Col3:23

22   Now Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood.23 All these, O king, Araunah has given to the king.”

     And Araunah said to the king, “May the LORD your God accept you.”

24   Then the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God with that which costs me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.25 And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.1Sam24:22-25
