Preparing for holiday celebrations means wrapping gifts and then watching as they are unwrapped. Whether giving or receiving, we can experience joy in the process of giving gifts. While the gifts we give each other can bring us happiness, God presents us with an even greater gift that is just waiting to be unwrapped!
God has presented us with a gift - the Greatest Gift - His Son, Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We can "unwrap" this gift through opening God's Word. We can learn about God's plan for all of humanity as well as for our own lives. We can experience joy as we talk to God, thanking Him and rejoicing in His gift to us. We also need to open our hearts, ready to receive God's gift of victory over sin. We need to unwrap and accept God's gift, a gift that will last for eternity!
Unwrap God's gift by opening His Word and then opening your heart!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son. Help me to always turn to You and to accept the gifts and blessings that You provide. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
