“The Significance of A Gift”

 Do you have a gift that you treasure due to the person you received it from? I am sure all of us have those things that we keep that remind us of the person who have given them to us. My parents, (when they were living), made sure that I had a new suit each year. Whenever a suit was found at just the right price they would "gift" me with one. I still think of Mom and Dad every time I put on a suit or see them hanging in the closet, I think of them. You see the true value of a gift is found in the value of the one who gave it.

As we approach Christmas this year, be careful to not lose sight of the greatest give this world has ever been given. A promised Messiah, Savior, Lord and King all wrapped into one.

 Luke 2:15-16 New Living Translation (NLT)

15 When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” 16 They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger.

 John 3:16 New Living Translation (NLT)

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

Reflect:

May you have a Merry Christmas! Identify who and what gifts God has given you and be sure to cherish them and thank Him for them.

In Him,

Pastor James
