Our Greatest Gift


Jesus is our exceedingly great reward. Be thankful and excited about the benefits of being in a relationship with Him.

After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward." Genesis 15:1, NIV

When I first became a Christian at age seventeen, I knew I’d made a great decision. I had made many bad decisions in my life, and accepting Jesus meant salvation for my soul. After I prayed the prayer of surrender, I also felt peace. Hope was another benefit; with Jesus in my life, my future seemed much brighter.

It’s only as the years have passed that I’ve realized even more the “benefits” that a relationship with Jesus brings: He is the greatest gift— knowing Him, loving Him.

Jesus before me.

Jesus behind me.

Jesus at my side.

Jesus within.

I can turn to Him.

I can expect Him.

He will never disappoint.

He will never disappear.

Jesus’ arms around me.

Jesus’ smile upon me.

Jesus wipes my tears.

Jesus rejoices in my life.

Jesus, my reward.

FAITH STEP: It’s easy to be thankful for and excited about the benefits of being in a relationship. Today, make a list of all the ways Jesus Himself is your reward.
