The Gift

As we open our presents on Christmas morning, I wonder if we have received the “Gift.” I am talking about the gift of Jesus Christ as our Savior. Many people haven’t received this gift. The gift is only mentioned three times in the bible. In Isaiah 7:14 we are told of this gift – “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” This gift was so important that it was repeated again in Matthew 1:23. Many of us re-gift our presents; this year I encourage you to share your gift with someone who hasn’t received it. Merry Christmas —-and Happy Birthday Jesus.
