Beyond the Christmas lights and presents, beyond the music and great food, God reminds us that in the fullness of time He gave us the most wonderful gift that has ever been given…this gift is Jesus. The apostle Paul was so overwhelmed at the thought of all that God has given us in His Son that instead of trying to put it all in words, he says, “Thank God for His Son—His Gift too wonderful for words.” Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift. “God loved us so much that He gave His Son, Jesus, so that we can have eternal life.” Jesus, the babe in the manger. Jesus, the Savior of the world, who brought the promise of unconditional love, unending hope, and eternal life to every person who believes in Him.
And the amazing thing is that not only are we able to receive Jesus Christ into our hearts, but we are able to share Him with others every day of the year! This is what Christmas is all about.
