The Greatest Gift

(This is a devotion I wrote right after Christmas 2010. I thought I would post it.)

Another Christmas has come and gone. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. When I was a kid, my family would go to my grandmother’s for Christmas. I would always look around at all the gifts under the tree to see which ones had my name on them. Oh, how I couldn’t wait to open those gifts.


Looking back, I can’t even begin to remember what my favorite gifts were. I am sure though that they eventually developed some wear and tear and I ended up getting rid of them. Or maybe I just grew tired of them and stored them in the closet.


There is one gift that can be given anytime of the year and once I accepted it, I learned to be grateful for it, more and more over the years. This gift has never developed wear and tear or become tiresome. The great thing about this gift is that everybody around the world has a chance to experience it. It is the gift of salvation that God makes available to all through our confession of our sins and our acceptance of Jesus as our Lord and Savior. That is why Jesus came to this world. The Bible says in Matthew 1:21, “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”


We are all sinners. Romans 3:23-24 says “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Then we are told in Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”


How incredible it is that God would send his son to us to pay for sins that we have committed and deserve the consequences of them! God loves each one of us so much. Jesus said in John 3:17 “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” Even though Jesus was a sinless man, he was willing to pay for our sins. He says in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” No doubt about it, our salvation is the greatest gift we will ever receive.












If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
