The Three Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Love
1 John 4:7-21

Often Christmas is a time of frantic preparation and celebratory gatherings. In all the frenzy, we lose sight of the central theme of Christmas—love. At the heart of all our celebrating, is God's great love for us. A love so vast God sent his son, as a baby, to live, die, and rise again, bridging the gap between God and mankind. This Christmas take time for quiet reflection. Do you understand the full story of the baby in the manager? Do you have a personal relationship Jesus, the one who died to redeem you? In this season of gift-giving, the greatest gift of all is God's love, a love that made provision for your eternity.
