It’s just a few days before Christmas, and it’s likely that you have spent the past month (if not longer) shopping for gifts. These gifts are personal and heartfelt – tailored to each special person in your life. Maybe your children or your spouse have hinted of a specific gift, or maybe you just knew they had their eye on something. After weeks and sometimes months of preparation, nothing is better than the surprised look on someone’s face when they see the gift you got especially for them.

James 1:17 states “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” Of all the gifts we have and will receive, none compare to the gift of salvation for those who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, believing that He died on the cross for our sins and rose again. This gift of salvation is especially tailored for you!”

As you enjoy this special holiday, take a few quiet moments to ponder the amazing gifts that God has given to you and delight in the Lord. Merry Christmas and God bless you.
