I love the glimmer of Christmas you just say the word and you feel as though sparkles shine through your eyes. You ride down a normally dark street and you see lights every which way in the month of December you see colorful lights on each side donning each house cheering up the tired toddler in the back seat of the car.

In the month of December the whole world has a different view on everything when the Christmas season rolls around it becomes magical...

I LOVE Christmas...

But do you know what I love more?

I love that God sent his only son Jesus to this world.

I love that he picked Mary to be his mother.

And Joseph to be his earthly father.

And so it was that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

I LOVE that Christmas is the season of giving.

And I want to share a gift with all of you tonight.

That gift is Jesus.

Please don't put this gift in the closet or try to return it to the store, don't forget it after you turn off your computer, don't leave it in your car.

Accept this gift tonight.

It's wrapped in truth.

Sealed with love.

Delivered with care.

And given to the ones who will believe in it.

You can settle this right now.

Open up the gift.

Jesus came as a baby, was born in a stable to save you and to save me.

He died on a cross, yes my friend on an old rugged cross for you and for me. Nails pierced through his hands and his feet. Blood stained his skin as he laid lifeless on that tree.

3 days later he arose and promised he would come again one day.

This is for the taking.

So please ask the Lord to come into your heart today. Ask Him to forgive you of your sins and accept this gift this wonderful gift of salvation.

Have a wonderful Christmas!
