During this holiday season, so many people are hurting; depressed; feeling suicidal and lonely. Many are medicating with drugs; hiding from the noise of those who are celebrating. So many people would like to skip this season altogether, because it has become such a commercialized, secular, Santa-filled, chaotic zoo. But there are those who want the true gift of celebrating CHRIST…. And this gift is life! This gift of salvation comes with healing; deliverance; peace; joy; restoration; reconciliation; forgiveness; new life and hope for a future.
There is no greater gift, than the gift of life. Celebrating CHRIST is about celebrating life. Through the free gift of salvation, the finished work on the cross, we are offered eternal and abundant life through HIM. What greater gift can we share through this season, than this gift of life? Nothing else matters, without it.
The pain of not knowing CHRIST, is the greatest pain there is…and people don’t even know it. All our lives we look for something to fill the void; something to make us whole; something to heal our hurt; something to give us hope. If we do not find CHRIST the Savior, then we continue to live a life filled with things, but still empty; filled with people, but still lonely; filled with secular fun, but no joy.
This is a season to celebrate CHRIST; and HE is the LIFE. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the LIFE...” (John 14:6) The WORD of GOD is life… “Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of ETERNAL LIFE.” (John 6:68)
“…but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) This gift is given to us with the greatest love of all... “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down HIS LIFE for his friends.” (John 15:13)
Share the gift that keeps on giving; the gift that is available to all; will benefit everyone; and when you offer it to others, you still have it! It costs nothing, because JESUS paid the price for it. It doesn’t last a day; but a lifetime. It is guaranteed; and it cannot be stolen. It lasts forever, because it is eternal.
