2 Corinthians 9:15 – Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!
Every year Christmas comes and goes like a season. While many celebrate the festive occasion with gift giving, Christians gather to celebrate an even greater gift, Jesus our Savior. The greatest gift of salvation was given to mankind through Jesus Christ (Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9).
With much of the attention on shopping and gift giving, the remembrance of Christ has slowly faded from the “holy-day.” Families gather to exchange gifts and a meal together but often forget the greatest gift of all. While they may enjoy receiving the latest gadget or trendy clothing, they neglect the gift that won’t break or go out of style.
Although the season of Christmas may come and go, Christ’s gift of eternal life is available 24/7/365. There is no greater love, no greater gift than someone laying down his life for another. Jesus has done this for you!
May this gift not go unopened this Christmas! Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas!
