Faith Gifts

God has provided more than forty things for the believer at the moment of faith in Christ. You receive these things by grace; you don’t earn or deserve them. When believers are made aware of all these gracious gifts after salvation, they are now able to execute their options for spiritual growth and the glorification of God. These gifts that we receive are the basis for the glorification of God in the “Church Age”, or until the “fullness of the Nation comes in” for execution of the pre-designed plan of God, grace orientation, and experiential sanctification. If the Father gives us all of this for free, how much is it worth to us to show our appreciation by our works?
