He is the Gift

By Whitney

He is the Gift 

The first gift

was not wrapped,

had no bow,

wasn’t purchased online

or in a store.

The first gift of Christmas

was a simple gift,

a sacred gift.

It wasn’t gold

or frankincense

or myrrh.

It was a gift of love

and life

and peace

and hope,

given by a father

to all His children.

For God so loved the world,

and so loved you

and you

and you

and every single one of us.

He gave His son.

He is the Christ.

He is Christmas.

He is the gift.”

This is the season most beloved of all. This is the season of giving and loving. This season is about Christ. Isn’t it amazing that a gift that was given over 2,000 years ago can still mean so much to us today? The gift was a gift of love. It’s the gift of God’s Son, our Savior: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. God gave this amazing gift, because He loves us all, individually. He loves me, and you, and each one of us. He knows us all by name, and loves us far more than we can even comprehend. Everyone deserves to feel this love. Everyone needs to feel this love. I will #ShareTheGift by sharing His love.
