A gift fit for the King--Jesus

Shoppers and gift givers are out in search of the perfect gift or treasure for those on their Christmas list. It’s always gratifying to watch the culmination of the treasure hunt end in the sheer delight in the eyes of a person receiving a desirable gift expressing exuberant joy.
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, sometimes we get so caught up in the season of giving that we can sometimes forget the person whose birthday and celebration the holiday reminds us of.
What is a gift that we can give to Him. After all, He owns everything. Everything was created by and for him, so what can we offer Him?
I love, “The Drummer Boy,” song. It reminds of just how little we have to offer to God. What can we give to a recipient who already owns everything?
Perhaps we can approach the question as we would when we are in search of the perfect gift for others. What would they like to have? What would be meaningful on our part to bestow upon them?
The wise men brought him expensive gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. They knew he was/is worthy of our best. So again, what can we bring to our King?
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” Psalm 51:17 (KJV)
Abraham is referred to as the father of our faith. His faith, belief in what God said, was credited to him as righteousness.
“And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.”
Genesis 15:6 (KJV)
“Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.’” John 6:29 (KJV)
“And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.” John 10:38 (KJV)
A wonderful gift to give our Lord on His birthday is undying love and devotion, by believing Him, surrendering our broken hearts completely over to Him. I believe these are gifts fit for the King, Jesus, who came to this world in lowly human form as a baby to relate to and redeem us.
As we complete the preparations for the big celebration of Christmas, may we prepare our hearts to give Him our best, our faith filled hearts!
