The Greatest Love-Gift of All!

Christmas is a time traditionally spent with family and friends. What if you're single? What if you're sick? What if your loved ones have passed away? What if you don't have money to buy gifts? What if you can't cook? Our human emotions tell us these circumstances should prevent us from celebrating and "feeling" the joy of the season. God has shown me over the the years that none of those things really matter as much as I thought they did. Why? Because they all take the focus away from His Son.

There is only ONE reason for this season and that's Christ. He is what makes this Christmas day. Without Him, it's just another day. I'm so very thankful for both the birth and death of Christ. Because of Him I walk in freedom from sin and will have eternal life with Him. The gift of Salvation! I didn't have to buy it. And no one else spent any money to give it to me. It truly is the greatest gift of all!

This season let's be certain to share the greatest love-gift of all which is Jesus Christ. May His offering of salvation be received by everyone with whom we come in contact. May He comfort the lonely, heartbroken, and grieving. May the joy He brings overcome all sadness. May His peace impact the world. May His Love pierce our hearts.

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:10-14"

Merry Christmas!
