Jesus Has A Treat For You

As an adult, I have never wanted to dress up for Halloween - I am not that creative. I have memories of going to our church fall festival growing up, working it as a youth, taking my children and hopefully my grandchildren. I love to see families doing things together, especially at church. Sunday families and friends filled our parking lots for Trunk or Treat. Our church does a trunk-or-treat where adults, children, families, couples whose children were grown, came out and walked around. Lots of treats were given out!

God, also, has treats for us - real treats! A free gift and we do not have to dress up or go anywhere! The King of Kings is giving us our royal inheritance, as His children! This is way more than money and is for all eternity! There are many people living life and ignoring the greatest inheritance of all! In the Bible, inheritance is a great example of a good gift: it’s free, given by grace— not earned—a windfall received from God, who loves us ALL. We ALL have the same inheritance to accept! With Jesus there are no tricks, just treats!

1 Peter 1: 3-4, "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you."
