This blog is my response to The Joy Dare by Ann Voskamp, author of the book "One Thousand Gifts". Every day (hopefully) I will be recording three things that bring me joy, three gifts from God, three things that I am grateful for.

December 7, 2012: The Gift of New Life

3 gifts from your Savior:
  • grace. "Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace, freely bestowed on all who believe." (Grace Greater Than Our Sin, Julia H. Johnston, 1911)
  •  new life. We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4
  • my ransom. The four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb and they sang a new song, saying:
    “You are worthy to take the scroll
        and to open its seals,
    because you were slain,
        and with your blood you purchased for God
        persons from every tribe and language and people and nation. 
    Revelation 5:8a, 9
