“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Every Christian knows or is at least familiar with this scripture.
Expounding on this verse, Gifts from Above presents a compilation of inspirational writings exploring word gifts as illustrated by the scriptures. Religion has taught that everlasting life is the life after death, entrance to heaven, and escape from hell. Author Pat Gayle knows that it is those things and so much more. Through her prose and poetry, she considers all the gifts that God has given us—but in particular the great love that caused Him to become a man to take on the punishment humankind deserved, giving us everything we could ever need in this life.
This collection of inspirational prose and poetry celebrates the many gifts God has given to humanity and encourages us to bring focus and attention to our first love, Jesus Christ.
