Recognizing God’s Gift

“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16 NKJV

The celebration of Christmas is central to modern society. It is the centerpiece in the annual cycle of businesses, observed by people ranging from atheists to casual churchgoers, and from lay people to ministers.

The real meaning of Christmas may seem obvious to Believers, but a recent Gallup Poll revealed that a large segment of society doesn’t realize that the purpose of this holiday is to celebrate the birth of Jesus. This startling fact should help us understand why there is so much confusion, fear, and turmoil in the world.

Millions of people assume that Christmas is a time to exchange gifts, have parties, take vacations, or visit friends and family. They do not realize that Jesus is more important than anything else.

In your life, remember that people all around you do not realize that God loved the world so much that He sent Jesus, and that “whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Christmas reveals that God’s heart beats with compassion for lost Souls. He knew that we were headed for destruction. As humankind suffered in sin, He knew that one day He would send Jesus, who eventually would die on a Cross. We could not save ourselves. But He loved us and sent Jesus to be our Savior. As Paul wrote, “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

What are your priorities this Christmas? Presents? Parties? Celebrations? Never forget to make Jesus the center. And remember the priority of seeking the salvation of lost Souls. Think about people you know who need salvation! Jesus was born and died so that they could be saved. Pray for them throughout this season. Make this a time to reach the Lost with the Gospel and help people discover the joy of salvation!

Prayer

Father, I pray for these people who need salvation: _______________. Draw them into Your Kingdom so they may have everlasting life! Thank You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
