December 18th The Best Gift

James 1:17-18

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.


Many gifts will be given this month, but none will be like the best gift ever given:

What we needed most: forgiveness of sins!


Wrapping: not in boxes, pretty paper with ribbons and bows. This gift was wrapped in human flesh and then wrapped in swaddling clothes.


Wasn‘t purchased with money: was purchased with blood, even blood of the cross!


Won our battle: brought eternal victory over sin, death and hell!


Worth is priceless: worked Salvation for whosoever will!


Welcomes us into Gods family: ....kind of first fruits of creation....that Jesus might be firstborn among many Brethren.


Won’t Wear Out: Will last forever: worship throughout eternity!
