God's Gift to You

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

The love of God is agape- which means affection, benevolence kindheartedness, generous giving, a love feast– (as in a celebration with or for loved ones).

God is so affectionate toward us that He gave us His only Son. This is His gift to us- His Son in whom He is well pleased- the One who is perfect and sinless. Our only task to receive this gift is to believe.

You can have God’s gift if you desire to have it. With the gift of Jesus Christ comes eternal life. Do you have room for all this love and goodness in your heart?

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

Jesus Christ is God's love that came down from heaven for us. Make room for Him in your heart. Our Savior came for all– the whole world– to have everlasting life. Take what is so graciously offered to you.

God gives you this precious gift from His heart. Jesus is wrapped in a little bundle small enough to hold, yet big enough to save the world.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Luke 2:11-12

The greatest gift of all was given without asking. God gave Jesus to us because He wanted to. Jesus gave Himself for us because He loves us unconditionally. We did nothing to deserve this love. Our Father presents His grace to us in spite of our sins. Unlike everything else in this world, this gift is free to anyone who believes. Jesus is within everyone's reach; big, small, rich, poor, healthy, sick, young or old.

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 2:13-14

The minute you believe that God sent His Son for you– the angels in heaven rejoice! You are now a citizen of God’s Kingdom and have eternal life! Jesus Christ and all His love is now alive within your heart. Accepting God’s Word as true causes celebration in your spirit and soul.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. Luke 2:15-16

Let someone find you with Jesus. Now you also can give the priceless gift of Jesus Christ, God's love.

Recieve your gift from God and have a Merry and Blessed Christmas!
