“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 6:23
A little girl was attending her first Christmas party. Her mother explained that Christmas is the celebration of the birthday of Jesus, so she went to the party with great expectation. When she returned home, her mom could tell something wasn’t quite right. She asked her daughter if she had enjoyed the party. The little girl answered, “Yes, it was a good party. We had a good time, but Jesus didn’t come.”
But Jesus did come – more than 2,000 years ago, and it is this amazing truth that we celebrate at Christmas. As you shop for gifts this year, remember to thank God that He gave us His perfect Gift, the gift of His Son Jesus, at Christmas.
