Christmas Present

The hunt is on! It happens every year. With deliberate purpose, calculated precision, and a heart full of love and anticipation the hunt for the perfect Christmas present is under way. No, it is not a search for the just right, hard to find gift. Rather, it is an entirely orchestrated production to prepare, package and deliver the perfect Christmas experience to everyone in your life. Now that is really setting yourself up for the impossible, but still the mission is set and off you go. So, you make it down the list of need to gets, have to do's, and must not forgets and spend the Christmas season manufacturing the perfect Christmas present.

This year why not take a different approach? This year give up the notion of Christmas by design and instead aimed to celebrate and experience the gift of Jesus Christ. Jesus really is the greatest Christmas present! Share Him with someone that is in need of his grace, light, peace, and strength. Introduce someone to His majesty with a easy to read copy of the Word. Witness the restoration of a soul when the gift of music and lyrics of a song of God's mercy pierces through despair and darkness. Open your heart, wallet and table to infuse a bit of Christ's light where it otherwise would never shine. Yes, this is Christmas present. What will you do to make it a Christmas that glorifies the One it is all about? Jesus Christ is the reason for Christmas and the heart of the season.  

“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.” Galatians 4:4-5
