Dec. 24 Devotion: The Greatest Gift

Greatest Gift

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A couple phrases we hear this time of year: “Put Christ back in Christmas.” “Jesus is the reason for the season.” I believe that each of you that are reading this know the true meaning for Christmas. We know it’s about celebrating the birth of our Saviour. I think we’d all agree that it’s the greatest gift we could ever receive. I think we could all also agree that more people are open to talking about Jesus at this time of year. How often do we take advantage of that and truly share the Gospel with those truly closest to us that we are around this time of year? We are afforded the opportunity to speak his name with less pushback around Christmas time. When we mention that this season is about Jesus do we ever continue on with the story of his birth and tell about the reason he came. Do we continue the story and tell about how he gave his life on the cross so that we could have the gift of eternal life? He’s not still a baby in the manger! As you are surrounded by family and friends this season don’t miss an opportunity to share the Gospel with those who’ve not trusted in Him! He’s more than just the reason for the season. He’s the greatest gift they could ever receive this time of year!

Hope each of you have a Merry Christmas! Bro. Josh Richardson
