Christmas is a season for gifts and we are reminded of God’s gift to everyone in the world:
John 3:16, NIV
16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

d. Beyond Words

Thanks be to God for his gift beyond words!
2 Corinthians 9:15, King James Version
Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
2. Our Response to the Gift
As with any gift, we may:
We can say a firm “NO” to Jesus Christ.
We can say that we believe in Jesus Christ, but in fact, we leave him out of our lives and have no day-to-day relationship with him. Our faith is just nominal.
Welcoming Jesus Christ into our lives as our Saviour and Lord and seeking to love, obey and serve him. What a gift!
