I think about the sacrifice Rebecca and I are making this year to give her parent’s a wonderful Christmas, as their year has been a tough one. I think about the look that will be on their face as they see this gift and it just makes me excited. I think about the ultimate gift God gave us that 1st Christmas morning. He willingly sent His Son to take human form, walk and teach among the common people; the same people he molded into His own image, the same people whom He gave the breath of life to, the same people who would ultimately betray and kill Him. God knew the outcome for His Son was not one of joy but one of pain and suffering, yet He gave…Freely! Jesus who came FREELY to give His life to save us from our sinful life.
God doesn’t ask us to give our life to others as a sacrifice, but He does ask us to give freely and cheerfully. So as you start this Christmas Season remember it is better to give than to receive. Give…of your time, your service, your talents, your work trade, your money to those who don’t have as much.
This Wednesday night we are watching the movie Christmas with a Capital C beginning at
6:30 pm in the Amphitheatre.
