When I think Christmas presents, I’m reminded how God sent his son to earth for us. While Jesus’ life was a costly gift, God sent him with his love for us in mind.
God says to anyone who’ll listen: “There has been born for you…a Saviour…” Jesus really is the perfect personal gift! He was given in love and that makes our Daddy God the perfect gift giver.
Can you imagine the joy our God gets when we truly understand that Jesus is the perfect gift for us? I really believe that He feels the most honoured when we rip into the wrapping paper of theology and tradition and fully embrace the gift of Jesus.
This is the time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus and we plan and think about the gifts we give to loved ones. At this time of year, may we remember that Jesus is the perfect gift given for us, not out of obligation, but out of the greatest love in existence.
