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!
