The Perfect Christmas Gift
As we enter into the season of Advent, and get ready to celebrate the Christmas season, everyone’s mind turns towards giving and receiving gifts. We all start focusing on lists and people in our lives that are going to get a gift from us. What is just the “right thing” to give to… “so and so”. What would express the love that we have for that person- (I am not very good at this and should probably start earlier than I do). When we give gifts to one another we are participating in God’s work. God is the initiator of the love that we are expressing, which makes me realize how awesome our God is.
Do you realize that He gives us the greatest gift - ever. It is not a gift that He gave us once and we remember it each year. No, it is new and exciting every year. It is a personal gift that expresses all the love that God has for us. It is the gift that changes our lives forever.
The name of this precious, personal, perfect gift is Jesus Christ.
“For God so loved the world.” It is God’s immeasurable love that moved him to sacrifice his only Son for us, sinful people. It is impossible to explain how our Holy God could love us sinful creatures that much.
He loves us and His Son more that we will ever know, or imagine. May we remember that as we prepare for and celebrate Christmas this year. God wants to let you know how much He loves YOU.
May each of us really experience the perfect Christmas gift this year.
May The Lord Bless and Keep You,
Rev. Stephen W. Barch
