CHRISTMAS – THE GREATEST GIFT
It is Christmas! What a wonderful day this is to celebrate and thank God. For many people, this Christmas may be different from those in the past due to Coronavirus, with the loss of jobs and income. Gift giving may not be available to everyone. There may be fewer gifts around the tree. Nevertheless, the greatest gift is in the Babe of Bethlehem. No gift compares! This gift cannot be bought, exchanged, or compared to any other. This gift is given to all God’s people. Your tree may be bear, in fact, you may not have a tree, but as a believer, you have the gift of Jesus Christ. Matthew 1:21 is our scriptural reference.
“And she will have a Son, and you are to name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
The scripture reveals that the Angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and told him to take Mary as his wife for she will conceive and have a son. They shall call Him Jesus who will save the people from their sins. In this text, the child of the Holy Spirit is born as a gift to the world. The greatest gift! The gift was in Mary’s womb and Joseph, a just man, would share in this miraculous birth. We too can share in this miraculous birth, for yes, it is true that Jesus is the reason for the season. Take the time, today, as we celebrate Christmas, to thank God for the greatest gift ever given. Jesus is with us always. Have a blessed Christmas.
