Merry Christ Gift

“She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)

Such a simple statement, and yet so much more complicated:

“Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!” (Philippians 2:6-8)

He who had everything gave it up for next to nothing–no home, no bed, no clothes–so that I might have everything through His sacrifice. The ultimate gift: freedom from sin, from enslavement to our carnal natures, even from death. May the true gift of God be your blessing this holiday season and always.
