The hustle and bustle of shopping has truly begun. Most people are now consumed with finding the right deals, steals and bargains. Whether it’s shopping at the local stores or making purchases on the Internet, we all want great buys for Christmas! This adventure can be tedious and tiresome, but the ultimate goal is to add some extra joy and happiness to our family, friends and loved ones. 

It’s always nice to receive gifts that we like, but sometimes, whether we admit it or not, we can receive gifts that we don’t like. We may think, “Why in the world did they buy this for me? Did they put any thought into this gift or was it just a last minute purchase?”  We may have experienced some disappointments, but to avoid hurt feelings, we just smile and hope that the next gift is a “winner.”

Well, I know about a special gift that will never disappoint us! Not only is this gift “Amazing,” it is also “Free!” Man can give us wonderful presents, but out of all the gifts that we can receive, in this world, it can never compare to this gift.  The gift that I’m referring to is truly ‘The Greatest Gift Of All” and this gift is receiving JESUS!

In John 3:16, It states, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  I love this verse because there’s no hidden agenda. We don’t have to spend any money or do anything special to receive this awesome gift. Because of God’s love for us, the only thing that we have to do is just BELIEVE in Jesus!

You may ask, “Why is Jesus the Greatest Gift of All?” Well, I’m so glad that you asked! In Philippians 4:19, it states, And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Having Jesus in our lives is everything! He can be our healer, provider, protector, comforter and friend. He can even make a way out of no way! Whatever you need, Jesus is all that and more!

Just a few days ago, I was thinking about going shopping and suddenly, my mind shifted on how good God has been to me. I immediately started praising and thanking Him for saving my life! Last year, I was in two car accidents, and I know that I am alive today because God shielded and protected me from those horrific crashes.  I called out the name of Jesus and He saved me and I am forever grateful for my “Greatest Gift of All!”

So, as we’re celebrating this wonderful Season of Christmas, let us not only partake of this special gift, but let us share it, as well. JESUS is the Reason for this Season and He wants us all to accept, believe and receive Him. Presents from other are great, but the Greatest Gift of All is Jesus and He is the Gift that keeps on giving! Glory to God!
