There is a story about a man who decided that he needed God, so he finds the highest mountain and begins the long hard climb to the top. He wants very much to find God so that he can leave with God all of the pain and hardships that he has to deal with in the valley where he lives. Unknown to him, God is climbing down the other side of the mountain. God has left his home because man is not able to reach Him on their own. God wants to take away all of the pain that man is forced to live with and the only way for that to happen was for Him to come down the mountain. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but shall have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
This Christmas you will probably receive gifts you like and need and probably one or two gifts that you don’t really need. Our heavenly Father, has given each one of us the perfect gift. This gift was His Son, Jesus Christ. The gift of Jesus will not only enable you to successfully deal with all of the turmoil in this world, but once you accept God’s gift, you will also inherit eternal life and live with your Lord and Savior forever. The Bible says that ‘every good and perfect gift comes from above’ and Jesus is the perfect gift that should continuously be given out every day of the year.
Jesus, the perfect gift, will change your life and you will become someone who loves not only their family and friends, but also their enemies. God is love and His Son, Jesus, died on the cross for the sins of all mankind – not just some of us but all of us. What better gift to give to someone who is in the valley right now. Share Jesus with the people God has put in your life. The price has already been paid, so all you need to do is share this precious gift that is unlike any gift anyone will ever receive. It is a gift of love. It is the gift of redemption and salvation. It is the perfect gift. It has been given to you – now give it away.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
