A young boy grew up in in a modest Nova Scotia home. He loved hockey and played it at every opportunity. But hockey sticks were very expensive, so he always had to borrow used ones from others. Then one year, in his mid teens, to his delight, he received a brand-new hockey stick from his parents. His Dad paid one dollar and ten cents for it. The boy thought it was the greatest gift he had ever received. But when he was seventeen years old, he received another, much more valuable gift, when someone showed him from the Bible that “the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” He learned that it is “by grace we are saved through faith, and that not of ourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works…” He received that gift, and realized it was the greatest he had ever been given. That wonderful gift is available to everyone. I know, because I was that boy.
