THE BEAUTIFUL GIFT!
This season is special to everyone, especially to Christians. The season is special for many reasons. For some, it is a time of rest while for others it is a time of gift giving and fun.
Personally, I have been blessed with a lovely nuclear and church family. That means a lot of love, cards and gifts from hundreds of people. Yet each of those gifts are individual and mean so much to the givers, and to me the receiver.
With all the beautiful gifts, which I am still in the process of opening, I realised that despite my many beautiful gifts, there is still a gift that surpassed them all and for you and I – that makes Christmas extra special.
The gift that we should always remember and use daily through the year is the gift of the son of God, Jesus. This gift gives daily and keeps on giving.
When Jesus was given to us as a Beautiful Gift, a few words were given through the angels to men.
The word says
‘Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace to those on whom His favour rests’ Luke 2:14
Jesus as a gift gave us and still gives us peace. Peace is one of the best things a man or woman can ever have. Irrespective of how successful you seem, if you have no peace the seeming success is useless.
Peace is a beautiful gift which however can only be given by God. A solid relationship with Him brings you genuine and lasting peace – so pursue one and enjoy not only this season; but your life as well.
