16 For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life. – John 3:16 TPT
Amidst all the glamour and clamor of this holy day season, let us never forget the real reason we are exchanging gifts at this time of the year. Each gift should be a reminder to each of us that God gave us Jesus and Jesus gave us everything. Let each gift be a gentle reminder that Christmas isn’t about us but about the one Who came that we “might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). He continues to give to us daily everything that we need to live a Godly life through His divine power and precious promises (2 Peter 1:3-4). On this special day that we have chosen to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, may each one of us take a few minutes to pause and reflect on His goodness and thank Him for His free gifts of mercy, love, peace and joy.
“Joy to the world, the Lord has come, let earth receive her King!”
