The Greatest Gift


Just want to wish you all a very merry and blessed Christmas.

Something I think about every Christmas: Jesus was born to die. Think about that. His conception, birth, life, whole existence here on earth pointed toward one event . . . His death.

His life–birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood–and every moment of it, every happening, every conversation, every healing, every teaching, was all part of a journey, a journey to Mt. Calvary, a journey to the cross.

And there He died for you and me. That’s what Christmas is really all about. Without death in view, His birth was just another birth.

So though we celebrate Jesus’ birth at Christmas, we really can’t celebrate His birth without also celebrating His death. Because through His death He gave mankind the greatest gift we could ever hope to receive–the gift of LIFE.

  2. Mike, the words you write in this space are a blessing. They point to our common humanity, and how God made us. We share the same hopes, fears, dreams, joys and sorrows. And we share the Hope. We’ll keep praying for you and your family, and you keep writing. Merry Christmas.
