“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”Luke 2:10-11 NASB
Are you anxiously awaiting that perfect gift for Christmas this year? It is always fun giving and receiving gifts at Christmas. There is always excitement about what is under that wrapping paper. As you open it you are thinking what could it be. You might be hoping for a certain gift.
No matter what you receive it cannot compare to the gift that was given when Christ was born. God knew that we needed forgiveness and that is why he sent a savior. He sent his son to pay the price for our sins. He gave the best gift ever and it was because He loved us.
One great thing about this gift is that it is for everyone. The angel told the shepherds that he had great news for all people. This gift isn’t for just a few people but all. No matter who you are this gift is before you.
You have to have the faith to accept this gift. The gift was freely given but you have to be willing to accept it. My prayer is that you will accept this gift this Christmas.
