This is a season for receiving and giving of gifts. A gift is something you are given free. But sometimes people don’t receive it for various reasons.
Some don’t know that a gift is being given to them. They may have not heard about it. Some may think it is not for me and I may not be able to make use of it. (Like) For example, if somebody says I (want) like to gift you a car, you may say sorry I don’t know to drive one.
And some think they are not worthy to receive one. So they don’t accept it. Especially if they receive it from someone to whom they have wronged. They may say “No Thanks”.
During this month of December, the big and small receive and give gifts. Parents give their children gifts. Employers give their employees gifts and bonuses. You too may give gifts to someone whom you love.
A gift is given to express love and concern. A gift is given to make you happy and your life easy. Lots of people look forward to gifts to solve, many of their problems too. Children as they become adults look forward to gifts from parents as their inheritance to live a good life.
But there is a Special Gift. It is The Gift that would solve all your problems. Your medical, financial, mental and material problems. You may be sick to die but you can be fully healed to live. You can be financially broke but you can be restored again. You could be depressed and have no hope but your life can be changed to be filled with joy, happiness and a Glorious Hope!
This Special Gift is from the Father, of us all, who is the creator of this earth and the heavens. The Father of lights, with whom is no variableness. The real Christmas Gift is from him. The Gift is of an Unconditional Love. It came in a form of a person. His name is JESUS. Christmas is his birthday celebrated worldwide. He was sent to this world to come and live a supernatural life for you and me and to die (in your place ) on your behalf and mine’s. He arose from death on the third day and is alive today. This way he delivered you from eternal death, sin, sickness and poverty.
You have freedom now. This (is) seems unbelievable. But it is true. He took your place in life along with your sin, sickness and poverty and paid the penalty for them all by sacrificing his life on cross. (and) In exchange, he gave his heavenly life and place to you, so that you can become a part taker of his divine nature. Also become a victor and not a victim in this life and in the life hereafter enter Life Eternal with him. You can overcome every challenge in this life. The first step towards this New Life is to receive The Gift.
To receive (The Gift - JESUS) him, you must believe in your heart that the Father raised JESUS from death and he is alive today, and confess him with your mouth as your Lord over your life.
Since JESUS is now alive and is in Spirit form you can receive him (as your Christmas Gift) through a prayer only.
You can begin a NEW LIFE with JESUS CHRIST Today. We invite you to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life by praying this prayer;
"(O Lord God) Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Your Word says, "...whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21).
I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the Lord of my life.
I receive eternal life into my spirit (heart) and according to Romans 10:9, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved," I declare that I am saved; I am born-again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! (1 John4:4).
I now walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!" Amen.
Welcome! to the Family of God.
