Christmas is known for the activity of gift giving. Parents have purchased gifts and hid them in secret waiting on Christmas day. Children learn to expect such surprises and have great anticipation of getting them. Items include toys, technology such as computers, and needed items such as clothing. Most receive these gifts with excitement and gratitude plus offer gifts in return.

God gave the gift of salvation through His only Son, Jesus. Jesus was greatly anticipated to all who longed for His coming. The Holy Spirit had revealed to some that his birth was imminent. The wise men from the east had a revelation of the Christ and followed His star to His birthplace. They believed and acted in faith. Their response to seeing Jesus was to worship Him and give gifts. They gave because in an act of worshipping the one true and only God.

Challenge: Believer, this Christmas examine your reasons for giving. Give the response of praise and worship to God’s gift of Christ Jesus unto the whole world.
