The gift that keeps on giving is love. If God is known for nothing else he is known as a loving God. In fact, as Christians if we are to be known for anything it should be that we loved people God’s way. You see saints of God, during this Christmas season God gave us the greatest love that we will ever come to experience when He gave us the gift of his Son Jesus Christ. The Scripture says “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him would not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).” Thus, God proved his love to us by giving us the best gift we could have received, and that was the gift of salvation through the birth, death and resurrection of the one we celebrate on Christmas; the one and only Christ the Lord. Child of God while we are spreading holiday cheer don’t forget to spread the gift that keeps on giving and that’s the love and salvation of Jesus. The love of God is so powerful that the apostle Paul said “And now abideth faith, hope and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love) (1Cor 13:13).” The fact is that charity (love) transcends the realm of heaven and earth; thus, we will need love on earth as well as in heaven because there will be no one in heaven that doesn’t love God. However, faith and hope is only good for this earthly life (or this side of the dirt) because when we see Jesus in heaven as he is faith will be swallowed up by sight; hope will be overtaken by reality, but love will still remain. Thus, the greatest gift we could really give this Christmas season is LOVE!!
God Bless You
