The Greatest Christmas Gift

The true meaning of Christmas points us to the Gospel, which is the good news about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God. This Christmas, I would like to share the greatest gift in life with you — Jesus Christ! 

The one and only God, who is holy, made us in His image so that we may know Him.

But because of our sinful nature, we sinned and cut ourselves off from God, thereby deserving punishment, which results in death.

In His great love, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from our sin and the wrath of God. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, died on the cross as a perfect sacrifice to bear God’s wrath in our place, and rose from the dead in order to give us eternal life.

God now calls us to repent of our sins and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior so that we may have eternal life and fellowship with God our Creator.

Now that’s the best gift! If you haven’t already, I hope that this Christmas Day, you will think over what Jesus Christ has already done for you and accept this gift of salvation from God.

As we look forward to 2013, I wish you and your family a merry Christmas and a happy new year filled with God’s blessings, joy, and peace!
