What is your favorite part of Christmas? I bet you will say "Gifts!" Gifts have been a part of Christmas for a long time! It started with a group of wise men that traveled from the east, following a star in the sky. They were seeking the new King that had been born. They brought gifts to Jesus, who by the time they arrived, was around two years old. These gifts were symbolic: they brought gold for a king, incense used by priests in the temple, and myrrh, an embalming spice—this King and High Priest was born to die. We continue the tradition of gift giving still today. But as we think about Christmas, we must always keep our eyes on the greatest gift ever given: Jesus! He came wrapped not in paper, but in strips of cloth. He came not to fulfill our wishes, but to give us eternal life! Today we will focus on the gifts of Christmas & talk about how we can receive the Gift of Christmas best by giving! In response to the best Gift-Giver we give Him our hearts & complete authority of our lives then listen for ways we can become gift-givers too! Like you do 26 times a year! THANK YOU!
Jesus is the Best Gift Ever!
