Here we are again, approaching another favorite time of the year. There weather is crisp and cold. Houses are framed with hundreds of little lights. Christmas cards are passed to and fro. Malls and shopping centers are filled with shoppers. Christmas tunes and the many smells of holiday treats fill the air. It is time for Christmas. It is called the most wonderful time of the year.
This is the season of gift giving. Most people are thinking about how many gift cards to purchase. They are shopping around for the latest electronic gadgets or games. Completing their shopping lists is what is on their minds. I wonder how many people have Jesus on their minds. How many of us are actually taking the time to remember Jesus is the reason for this season and not gift cards, electronic games, or flat screen TVs? Those things are nice gifts, but what about Jesus who is the true gift?
Every Christmas I receive the most amazing gifts. I know this year will not be any different. But there is no gift that can top the most wonderful gift given to me and His name is Jesus. Jesus hung on the cross so that we may have eternal life. So you see, there is no greater gift than the gift of Jesus. During this busy season, take time to remember Jesus and how He is the true gift of life.
