A Christmas Gift

“For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given.” –Isaiah 9:6a child

When a child is born you can’t help but to plan and dream about the life they’re going to have. That first smile and first step. That first word that will soon lead to conversations. You imagine the adventures your child will have, the people they will meet, the new experiences they will have. You brace yourself for when they stumble and fall and you celebrate when they overcome and triumph. You picture them falling in love and saying I do. You even go as far as imagining what their kids will be like and how they would function as a parent. Not for one moment do you ever think about how that child would die.

God did, that was His thought when He sent His Son into the world. God’s thoughts were not just on the life His Son would live but on His death. For through His Son’s death, He will have the joy of seeing you live.

Born to Die

Jesus Christ the Son of God was born to die. There was no doubt that He loved His Son. God boldly declared it when Jesus was baptized, “And a voice from Heaven said, ‘This is My Son, whom I love, with Him I am well pleased’.”-Matt 3:17the gift

Jesus was very aware of the Love that His Father had for Him, it is evident in His prayer to the Father, “Father I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory You have given me because You Loved Me before the creation of the world.” –John 17:24

He Died for Love

A child was born and given with one thought in mind, that His death would give you the gift of life. This gift was freely given, it was unearned and unmerited.

You see at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:6-8

He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. Oh death where is your victory? Where is your sting? Rom 4:25 1 Cor 15:54-55

This gift of eternal and unfailing love, perfectly wrapped in the birth and death of a beloved Son, is for anyone who believes in this everlasting Love. The true Christmas Gift, the Gift of all gifts . Neither height or depth, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the Love of God. Rom 8:39

A Christmas Prayer for You

That you would grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ (for you), and to know this Love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. For God so loved you that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts. Eph 3:18-19, John 3:16, Heb 3:7

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Have a very Blessed and Merry Christmas everyone!


The Gift of all Gifts

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7)

When Adam fell we lost the Kingdom of God and all of the gifts that come with it.  It was in the garden of Eden that God first revealed His gift to Man. God declared that He would put enmity between the enemy and the woman, and that the Seed of the woman will bruise his head and that the enemy shall bruise His heel (Genesis 3:15).

The birth of Christ is the gift of all gifts; it is God’s promise to Man fulfilled. Because of God’s love for Man, He came down in the flesh and restored all that was lost. Oh what a gracious gift.

Because of God’s grace we gained a great leader and a government that cannot compromise or be bought.  Oh what a merciful gift. Because of God’s love we gained a wonderful counselor whom we can cast all of our cares and burdens on, oh what a wonderful gift.

Because of God’s faithfulness we’ve gained a Father like no other, one who is mighty and powerful, a Father that can move mountains, part the deepest seas and heal with just a single thought, oh what a mighty Christmas gift. With this gift we’ve gained access to a Father who can supply all of our needs, one who will never leave us, forsake us or fail us.

With this gift we’ve gained true peace, the kind of peace that can calm any storm that life throws at us, peace that can heal broken hearts and restore and rejuvenate the soul. What an awesome Christmas gift.

This Christmas let’s give thanks to God for giving us the gift of all gifts for giving us the desires of His heart. Glory Hallelujah what a beautiful gift! Happy Birthday Jesus and MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of  you God’s children.
