Perhaps you have, or maybe you haven't. Nevertheless, will you allow me just a few minutes to tell you about just that kind of gift that is actually being offered to everyone? Let me explain. There's a verse in the New Testament of the Bible that says: "Thanks be unto God for His indescribable gift." A certain writer commenting on this Bible verse said the following: "The idea is, that no words can properly express the greatness of the gift. It is higher than the mind can conceive; higher than language can express." The gift to which this Bible verse is referring is God's Son, Jesus Christ. This time of year we like to refer to Him as "baby Jesus." The sad reality is most people rarely think of baby Jesus this time of year anymore. Instead of the nativity scenes dotting the landscape, it's now the Santa Clauses, the Christmas lights, the sleigh bells, the parties - and a host of other things - that so easily become the focus of our attention. But this baby Jesus - this indescribable gift of God to mankind - would grow up to be a man, and having lived a perfect, sinless life would offer His life upon a cross. He would die a very cruel death upon that cross, but then, three days later, conquer death by rising from the grave. All of this He gladly did for you and for me so that we might have the forgiveness of our sins and eternal life through Him. Oh what a gift of love! How indescribable! Will you open your heart to God and His Son Jesus Christ today? Christmas truly is a wonderful time of the year, but even more so if you truly understand and embrace its true meaning and significance. In closing, I would ask that you please consider the following words in red found in the the Gospel of John chapter 3 in the Bible. Perhaps sometime during this Christmas season you could pause long enough to sit down and read the entire chapter. The Gospel of John chapter 3 is one of the clearest and most important chapters in all of the Bible - a good starting place for someone truly seeking God.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him."
