It's Christmas Day...a day of celebration...a day that reminds us just how much God loves us.
“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.” Isaiah 9:6 NKJV
For many today is a day of joy...a day of exchanging gifts with friends and family.
“When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:10-11 NLT
Guided by a star the Wise Men presented 3 gifts to Jesus:
GOLD…a gift normally given to a KING…Jesus is the “King of Kings”.
FRANKINCENSE…used by the Priests…burned as incense…showing His deity.
MYRRH…used in embalming…it tells of His death.
But…the greatest gift of all is seldom mentioned…they first gave themselves…“they bowed down and worshipped Him”.
What will you give to Jesus today?
Remember God is giving you a very special gift...Jesus.
If only you will receive Him.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV
