God gives to man seven gifts. James 1:17 says, Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights.”
The first gift is the greatest gift to the world. Jesus Christ is that gift. John 4:10 says, “Jesus said and answered to her, If thou knewest the gift of God and who it is that saith unto thee, Give me to drink, thou wouldest have asked of Him and He would given thee the living water.” II Corinthians 9:15 says, “Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift”.
You and I cannot do anything to earn Jesus. He is a gift from God and is to be received by faith. James lets us know clearly that EVERY good gift is from God and it begins with Jesus. Romans 8:32 says, “He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for all of us, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things”.
The second gift from God is His Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38-39 says, Then Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children and to all that are afar off”.
You cannot buy the Holy Spirit. Acts 8:20 says, “Peter said Thy money perish with thee, because thou has thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money”. Acts 10:45 says, “And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are gifts to both Jew and Gentile.
