Don’t Miss the Gift

There’s a package at the door! I need to get that package!”
Don’t miss the gift.
“I ordered your present online. They said it should be here tomorrow.”

Don’t miss the gift.

In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Don’t miss the gift.

He came into His own, and His own received Him not. But to as many as received Him, he gave them the right to become children of God.”

Don’t miss the gift.

The gift is not under the tree this Christmas. The gift is on the tree.

The gift is not wrapped with ribbon and bow. It is wrapped with blood and with grace.

The gift was not bought with cash, credit, or debit. The gift was bought with the blood of the Lamb.

The gift is not about money or power or prestige. It is not about control. It is not about dominance or authority or chain of command.

The gift is Jesus, hanging on the cross in extreme pain, isolated, alone, bleeding, and with one thought in mind – “I have to finish my Father’s mission. I have to pay the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. My Father loved the world so much that He sent me to pay this price so that they could have eternal life with me and through me. They may never know this deep down, but it is still true that You loved them enough to send me. I loved them enough to come. Father, into Your hands I commit my spirit.”

Don’t miss the gift. The gift of Jesus. The gift of eternal life. The gift of forgiveness and grace and mercy. The gift is free to us and costly to Jesus. It is wrapped in love and received in the heart. If you realize the need, Jesus is the solution. God is the giver and Jesus is the gift. For the sake of your eternal soul and your deepest needs, please don’t miss the gift!
