The gift of God is a pure and graceful invitation into His Spirit to make us fully whole. When we accept His gift of abundance, we feel convicted about the life we led and feel conflict when we revert. We may even be pulled in different directions by our sin. But the beauty of this gift is that we are not in this alone: We are all trying to overcome our sinful natures to be something better than who we were. Only God’s love can make us wholly, truly, alive.
