The Greatest Gift
“I got an x box for Christmas it’s brilliant. You can play games really quickly and the pictures are amazing. It’s so exciting to play with my friends.”
“I got a Hugo Boss Tracksuit. It’s really cool and I look great.”
“I got a new I pad. It was very expensive.”
So many nice things to own and enjoy. Perhaps too many things?
In the end however expensive or brilliant they are they will wear out or break or get lost or we will grow bored or too old for them.
I know of a wonderful gift:
A gift that means that all the wrong things I do can be washed away
A gift that heals my hurts and comforts me through pain
A gift that gives me hope in difficult times like the ones we are going through now
A gift that says I’m valuable
A gift that gives me life beyond death.
When this gift was given even the angels sang for joy:
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.”
Luke 2:14 NIV
Yes that small baby, born in weakness in a small stable is that wonderful gift.
God with us.
His birth gives meaning to all of time and space and a wonderful purpose and meaning to our lives if we ask him to be with us and follow him.
Choose the best gift.
Thank you for coming to our world
As we celebrate the wonderful gifts and fun of Christmas
We ask that you would make a home in our hearts.
May we grow with you
May our lives be guided by you and your word
And may we live with you forever.
Happy Christmas to everyone and special love to all our Sunday School friends and Family. Though we have not met together for a while we have not forgotten you and hope that soon we will be able to meet again.
Lots of love from Colin and Sarah and Kay. Xxxxxx
