I was pondering today, the fact that Jesus is the Greatest Gift that can be given to anyone. And He offers himself to all mankind.
Yet do we stop to ponder the gifts that are ours, within the Gift of Jesus?
I have been thinking on the gifts I enjoy, daily, because of Jesus being the Lord of my Life, my received gift, of My Savior.
It’s like opening a present, to find another present…opening that one, to find yet another present…opening that one, to find still another, all throughout my life. Amazing! Thrilling! Oh friends, you simply must ponder this…
Here is but just a glimpse of my list, that I have rejoiced in. Perhaps you can add to it, many more gifts, but this will at least get you pondering about what I mean:
- His Love
- His Presence
- His Wisdom
- His Comfort
- His Provision
- His Listening Ear
- His Forgiveness
- His World’s Beauty to Behold
- His Acceptance
- His Family
- His Salvation
- His Healing
- His Life – Eternal Life
- His Discipline
- His Guidance
- His Peace
- His Judgments
- His Protection
- His Word of Truth
I know this list could go on and on, for Christ is simply the gift that keeps on giving…
So, don’t know what to offer someone on your list for Christmas? Offer them Jesus.
Share Him, so that they may receive OUR GREATEST GIFT in life: CHRIST JESUS, THE SON OF GOD, WHO CAME, TO TAKE AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD….TO GIVE US HOPE…TO BRING US GOOD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY…HIMSELF.
Yes, a gift must be received, to have it be a blessing. Oh that Eyes would SEE, and Ears would HEAR, even amidst all the commercialized hoopla, or depressing news evil brings to this world, the fact that CHRIST, IS INDEED, EMMANUEL, GOD WITH US. AND HE STILL IS… WITH US… alive and well…giving us everlasting gifts…
He came once, as a baby.
HE GAVE HIMSELF… TO BRING YOU ALL THESE GIFTS…
He comes again, triumphant, as our King.
ARE YOU REJOICING? (Smile) I SURELY AM!
