God’s Christmas Gift

Every year we hear the familiar accounts of the Christmas Story.  Of all the Scriptures, my favorite is:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV).

Jesus was God’s Christmas gift to the world!  He gave His greatest gift to those who needed it the most.

Have you ever received a gift that had a gift inside?  God’s gift was like that.  Those who received His gift also received eternal life.  The Apostle John wrote:

“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son” (1 John 5:11 NKJV).

If you have received the Son in your heart, you have eternal life – it is that simple!

God’s gift to you this Christmas is one you can share with others.  Share this gift with someone you know this season.

You are holy, dear saint!
