You got my point don’t you? Every company wants you to think that their product is the best gift to give someone or even request for yourself.
One of the great things about being a Christian is that we have the best gift that anyone could ever give us. Our heavenly father gave us the gift of his son as our Savior. The one who paid the price for our sins with his blood. As I kid the best gift I thought I ever got was the year I received a train set. The note in the package told me to go out to the garage and find my gift. I ventured my way out there and found a train set put together on a piece of plywood. FANTASTIC! This is mine! Awesome. One of the problems was that the train set had to stay in the garage and the garage was really more like a shed that didn’t have any heat. And living in Illinois it is usually cold and snowy in the winter. I found ways to play with it but it wasn’t as awesome as I thought. As I’ve gotten older I still remember the train set but don’t have it anymore. But the best gift my parents gave to me was the gift of Jesus. I still have him today and know that I have heaven through him.
Jesus is awesome! He is our Savior! He lead a perfect life by keeping all of God’s laws and humbled himself on the cross. We have heaven because of this. Jesus is the best gift you can give anyone this Christmas. You can wrap an invitation to our Christmas services and share it with someone you know who needs to hear about Jesus. We’ve got cards on the table in the back of the Sanctuary and Ministry Center that you can grab and share with your friends. Think about the gift that has been given to you by someone who loved you. Share that free gift of Jesus –it never expires, breaks, rusts or decays! Invite, share and hear the good news of Jesus!
