God’s gift to us!
When the angels appear to the shepherds on the night of Jesus’ birth, they said, “Don’t be afraid! I bring you good news of great joy for everyone! The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born tonight in Bethlehem, the city of David!” (Luke 2)
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it. (John 3.16-17)
When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. (Romans 5.6)

What can we give God?
I love the words in the song, “In the Bleak Midwinter …
What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
if I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
yet what I can I give him: give my heart.
Will you give him your heart?
