Introduction: Have you at any point met a humanitarian? You say, "What is a donor?" Well, "generosity" signifies "Wanting to work on the material, social and profound government assistance of humankind, particularly through magnanimous exercises." Therefore, a giver is somebody who gives their time, gifts and cash to others with an end goal to work on the state of their life.
In our day, there are a few noticeable givers. Charge Gates, the pioneer behind Microsoft, who is valued at nearly 60 billion bucks, has promised to offer each dime before he passes on! He really paid to have every one of the youngsters in the nation of Rhodesia immunized for little pox. Charge Cosby has given huge number of dollars to African-American universities, to assist with teaching youthful blacks. We hear these accounts and we praise the liberality of that sort of individuals. Today, I need to acquaint you with another giver. However, He isn't simply any altruist. He is the best giver! As James lets us know in these sections, God has given the best, all things considered, to the best number of individuals. I might want to require a couple of moments today to impart to you only a couple of the extraordinary gifts given to humankind by the best humanitarian. I really want to believe that you will see today that God has taken care of you, that He cherishes you beyond all doubt and that He has a magnificent arrangement for your life. We should direct our concentration toward these stanzas, particularly sections 17-18 as we ponder The Greatest Philanthropist. I. THE GIFT OF HIS SON ("The Father of lights") A. At the point when God is designated "the Father of lights," it talks about His way of life as the Creator. The old agnostics trusted the lights in paradise, the sun, the moon, and the stars were divine beings. James lets us know that God Himself is the Creator of the stars above. They are not divine beings, but rather were made by God, our Father. However, God gave man something beyond the lights overhead! At the point when God sent His Son, Jesus into the world, He gave man His most prominent gift. Paradise's light was sent into the world to enlighten our murkiness, John 8:12. B. God, in His affection for lost humankind, sent His Son into this world to bite the dust for our transgressions on the cross, John 3:16; Rom. 5:8. Sick. The ruthless idea of the daily routine He experienced and the demise He kicked the bucket, John 1:11; Matt. 8:20; Isa. 53:1-12, Isa. 52:14! Jesus, by coming into this world as a man was perpetually modified by His manifestation and His demise, Phil. 2:5-11! C. What effortlessness that God would send His dear Son to bite the dust for us that we may be conveyed from obscurity, passing and condemnation, Col. 1:12-14! D. Express gratitude toward God for the endowment of His Son - 2 Cor. 9:15! Do you know Him? In the event that you do, you understand what I am referring to. On the off chance that you don't, then you want to meet Him and you can by coming to Him in confidence. II. THE GIFT OF HIS SALVATION ("Of His Own will generated He us with the expression of truth… ") A. "Generated" alludes to the new birth. It talks about that snapshot of time when a lost delinquent lowers himself before a heavenly God and trusts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is the occasion Jesus conversed with Nicodemus about, John 3:3, 7. It is that occasion that blended the core of Paul, 1 Tim. 1:12-17; Titus 3:5. It is the occasion that Peter alludes to in 1 Pet. 1:23. B. The Bible says that this "new birth" occurs from "the expression of truth." This alludes to the Gospel message. What is the Gospel? Basically, "it is the force of God unto salvation to each one that believeth; to the Jew first, and furthermore to the Greek," Romans 1:16. The message of the Gospel is this: "For I conveyed unto you above all else that which I additionally got, how that Christ kicked the bucket for our transgressions as per the sacred texts; And that he was covered, and that he rose again the third day as per the sacred writings:," 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. It's as simple as that! It has nothing to do with chapel enrollment, sanctification, benevolent acts, starting over, and so on. Everything revolves around tolerating with a supernatural conviction the completed work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything no doubt revolves around your approaching to where you understand that you have no desire for salvation separated from His passing, His restoration and His shed blood! It is tied in with creating some distance from "do" to rest ready "done." Have you done that? Salvation is God's gift to a lost and kicking the bucket world, 1 John 1:12; Rom. 6:23; Acts 11:17; Rom. 5:15. C. For the individuals who know Him, the arrangement of salvation is a valuable truth and strong gift, 1 Cor. 1:18. Simply the considerations of how He helped us when He ventured into our transgressions, saved us by His elegance and conveyed us from death into life is a magnificence ridiculously incredible, Ill. Eph. 2:1-10; John 5:24! III. THE GIFT OF HIS SUPPLY ("cometh down from the Father… ") A. God is called our "Father." The word signifies "generator, or male progenitor." There are numerous different definitions and utilizations for this word, however the one that summarizes the thought James is attempting to get across is this: "one who remains in a dad's place and cares for one more in a fatherly manner." As our Father, God has our requirements on His heart! B. In the event that you have believed Jesus as your own Savior, you have been carried into an extraordinary relationship with God the Father. At the point when you were saved, you were embraced into His loved ones. He has guaranteed you as a child or a little girl and He has taken care of all your requirements. C. This reality is found in Romans 8:15. This section lets us know that we have been conveyed from the servitude of dread and that we have been taken on into the group of God. In our general public, embraced youngsters frequently feel, and are seen to be, inferior individuals from the family. That is miserable, yet valid for some. They are everlastingly helped to remember the way that they were not brought into the world in to the receptive family. In any case, in antiquated Rome, the situation were immeasurably unique. To be embraced was viewed as an extraordinary honor. (Sick. Reception - "reception" signifies "to put as a child." The image of reception is a delightful image of how God helps the Christian. In the old world the family depended on a Roman regulation called "patria potestas," or "the dad's power." The law afforded the dad outright control over his youngsters insofar as the dad lived. He could work, oppress, sell, and assuming that he wished, he could articulate capital punishment. No matter what the kid's grown-up age, the dad held all control over private and property privileges. Hence, reception was a big deal. However, it was a typical practice to guarantee that a family wouldn't become wiped out by having no male youngsters. Furthermore, when a youngster was embraced, three legitimate advances were taken. 1. The took on child was taken on for all time. He was unable to be taken on today and excluded tomorrow. He turned into a child of the dad - until the end of time. He was interminably secure as a child. 2. The embraced child promptly had every one of the privileges of a genuine child in the new family. 3. The embraced child totally lost all privileges in his old family. The took on child was viewed as a renewed individual - - so new that old obligations and commitments associated with his previous family were offset and nullified as though they won't ever exist.) (Sick. At the point when we came to Jesus, we were removed from Adam and embraced into Jesus. We have another Father!) D. By goodness of your reception into God's family, you are brought into a new and valuable relationship with Him. Could you concur with me today that God loves everybody? The majority of us would concur with that assertion in view of sections like Jer 31:3 and John 3:16. Be that as it may, have you at any point viewed as this suspected: God doesn't adore all individuals the equivalent? At the point when Jesus was here, His Father referred to Him as "My cherished Son… ", Matt. 3:17; 17:5. This assignment discusses the extraordinary relationship Jesus had with His Father. However, did you had any idea about that when you and I were saved, we went into that equivalent kind of relationship? This is the very thing Paul says in Romans 1:7, "To all that be in Rome, darling of God, called to be holy people… " Friend, assuming you are saved, you are precious to the Father's heart! D. Since that is valid, pay attention to the Father's vows to His youngsters concerning their requirements: Matt. 6:25-33; Phil. 4:14; Luke 12:32. Companion, I am simply attempting to advise you that God will deal with you! IV. THE GIFT OF HIS SATISFACTION ("Each great gift and each ideal gift… ") A. We are informed that God's gifts are "great and awesome." This has the possibility of their being "alluring and complete." God gives us things that we want to have and He gives us things that are finished in everything about. At the point when Satan enticed Eve in the Garden of Eden, he attempted to tell her that God was holding out on her, Gen. 3:5. He even attempted to infer that Jesus getting short of what He merited since He was the Son of God, Matt. 4:4. Companion, if you and I don't watch out, he will attempt similar strategy with us. Satan will let us know that God truly doesn't take care of us. He will let us know that we don't merit the difficulty we are having; that God ought to be giving us more noteworthy and greater things, that God is unreasonable. B. The reality of the situation is that God is much better to us than we at any point merited! He has favored us with each conceivable otherworldly gift, Eph. 1:3. He has guaranteed us complete fulfillment, Psa. 107:9. He gives, and when He does, He generally gives the best that He has, and He generally gives generally that He has! (Sick. Consider everything God has given to His youngsters: Jesus, salvation, Bible, Spirit, Heaven, trust, life, pardoning, timeless life, and so on!) Sick. God is diverged from the sun overhead. The sun gives its light, yet that light can be darkened by mists and it can
