The Gift of Life - A Different Perspective - December 20

The Gift of Life

by Berni Dymet

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I happen to think that becoming an organ donor is one of the most obvious things that any of us can do.

I mean, if I'm killed in a car accident tomorrow, why shouldn't someone else have the gift of life through my kidneys or liver or heart? I won't need them. To me, it's just the obvious thing to do.

The people I really admire, though, are the ones who donate a kidney to a friend while they're still alive. It's easy enough to give your organs away when you don't need them anymore - but when you're alive - well, that really is a gift of life.

And that's why when I look at what Jesus did for me on the cross - I just can't comprehend it. The Son of God - brutally nailed to a cross, to pay for all my stupid mistakes - I... there just aren't any words to describe how I feel. A gift of life?

The gift of life. Eternal life.
