I GIVE YOU JESUS

During this month of December, family and friends are busy sending and receiving gifts all over the world. Shopping is at the top of the agenda with records being set and broken during the holiday celebration. This is a custom that has been developed over the years around Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Christ. While Santa Claus has been edging Jesus out of His birthday, I think it’s important we remind ourselves of Jesus the perfect gift from God.

God knowing the over whelming needs of humanity compacted Himself into a package that would meet all those needs and more. Jesus arrived on the scene as a serene, quiet baby that would forever change history. Jesus the gift of God has gone on to impact billions of lives over through the years. This season you may be given many awesome gifts while you yourself give many to your loved ones. So I give you Jesus the ultimate gift.

The words of the song by Janet Pascal still ring through the years.

I give you Jesus
He’s the peace that passes all understanding;
I give you Jesus
He’s the perfect love that casteth out all fear;
I give you Jesus
He’s the water that you drink and never thirst again;
I give you Jesus , my friend, I give you Jesus.

SCRIPTURE READING: Isaiah 9:6-7 For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; And the government shall be upon His shoulder, And His name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, [He shall rule] on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from that time forward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us Jesus who is the ultimate gift in our lives. By Him we live and move and have our being. Amen
