The Gift Of Christ

When you think about Christmas, what comes to your mind?

I think about wonderful moments with my family, especially as a child. My mother always made the Christmas season special with decorations, gifts, and an amazing turkey dinner on Christmas day. And oh, what gifts! There were so many that we couldn’t wait to get out to the living room early Christmas morning to open them.

But, perhaps, Christmas Eve was the most special time of all. We would all sit together curled up on the couch and read the Christmas Story — the account of the birth of Christ from our family Bible. Mother had always taught us, with her life and with God’s Word, that Christmas is first and foremost about the gift of Christ

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
John 3:16-17 NIV

The best gift you can give to God is to believe in Christ. Give yourself to your Lord. He will make His home in your heart. When you receive Christ by grace through faith, you are saved —

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:8-10 NIV

So today, if you have never received Christ, you can pray to Him a prayer something like this — Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I ask You to come into my life, forgive my sins, give me eternal life, and make me the person You want me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the best gift of all. He is everything you need for every circumstance of life. He is altogether lovely and the sweet aroma of His presence is like that of a beautiful rose — it fills every part of your life and touches the lives of everyone around you.

So this Christmas, remember the best gift — the gift of Christ.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
