May we all recognize this amazing gift spoken of in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

 

Our God is a great giver, and we can learn a lot about giving from Him. Let’s share His love, joy and peace. Most of all, let’s share the message of Christmas: JESUS, The Gift. May our celebrations of the season be a proclamation to the world, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift
