Brown Teddy Bear

Buckingham Palace in London, EnglandThe Father completes the work of redemption by giving the Holy Spirit. In Acts 2.38b. we read, "and you will receive God's gift, the Holy Spirit." This was true of Jesus too for Acts 2.33 tells us, "He has been raised to the right side of God, his Father, and has received from him the Holy Spirit, as he promised. What you now see and hear is his gift that he has poured out on us."

King George Ill

Brown Teddy BearPatrick Hart writes of an experience he had as a child related to King George the Fifth (1865 - 1936) the king of England. "When I was five years old, in the 1930s, my father, mother and I would go for a walk on Sunday afternoon past Buckingham Palace Gates. As we passed one day, I heard my parents say that King George was ill. Some people came out of the palace gates, and I gave them my teddy bear which had seen better days. One eye and a leg were missing and sawdust was leaking out of him, but to me he was the cure for all troubles. I told the people that this was a gift for King George and to tell him that if he put it in his bed he would soon be alright."

For Services Rendered

"Some weeks later, I received my teddy bear back by post. With it was another parcel containing a toy submarine, a drum and drum sticks. Attached to the drum was a card reading: 'For services rendered to His Majesty King George V.'" When you give God what you have, he gives you the greater gift, his Holy Spirit, for services rendered to the King of all Kings.✞
