And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)
A Tribute to Jesus…CHRISTmas is the most wonderful time of the year – family, sharing, and laughter. If we are not careful, we can quickly forget the reason for all the joyous celebration. It is not about just giving gifts, time, or service but it is about respecting the greatest gift ever given to humanity.
Many years ago, a Father had a longing desire to see His prodigal sons and daughters return to Him. It was final and an executive decision was made. He had to send one who was qualified to abolish sin and death, to teach humanity how to prepare for eternal life, and to encourage mankind to re-possess the authority that was given away. The only one qualified was named Jesus meaning “Jehovah is salvation.”
As you are enjoying this Christmas holiday, reflect on the greatest gift given to all of mankind. Why are you waiting? Receive your gift, un-wrap the box, open it, and enjoy all the contents found inside. This is the least you can do.
