The greatest gift of Christmas

Matthew 2:11 ( post from 2010 Christmas)

Yesterday I shared a message with our community about how
all the decorations, and festivities, and the overwhelming busyness leading up to
Christmas day – how all these activities – the shopping, the wrapping and the traveling and feasting – as good as they are in themselves – how they are so infinitely less, insignificant and pale in comparison to the awesome and indescribable incarnation of the Christ Child. In deed He is the most important reason for the season. He is also the greatest gift of Christmas. And having him in your life is going to change your life forever.

Another important aspect of the Christ being the
greatest gift that can change a life stems from two things:

The very act of God himself – “He loved the world so
much that He gave His only begotten Son. What an extraordinary gift.

Also in Matthew 2:11 where it says, “opening their
treasures” they lavished him with gifts. I believe God has given us the examples throughout scripture
to be givers. People who give extravagantly, not expensive toys to people who don’t need them – but to people who truly need to experience God.

So as christmas is about to roll around the corner – why don’t we choose now to focus more on Him – and since  Christmas is a reminder about extraordinary giving – why don’t we seek out someone who really will need a demonstration of God’s extraordinary gift. Why don’t you find someone today to shower with love on christmas day . I am certain you will be blessed in the process.
