The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!


December 1, 2013

I truly love this time of year!!! I thank the Lord, I have so many wonderful and blessed memories!!! My mom and dad made Christmas so special for us 6 Ulrich kids!!! All the decorating and baking and laughter and FUN!!! On Christmas morning, the tree was always full with gifts!!!

But also, that's the thing about gifts -- we couldn't just stare at the gifts and say, "Ooooooooo!!! Thanks mom and dad. We are going to just sit here and look at the pretty gifts under the tree. Thank you for the gifts."

No!!! The gifts have to be truly received -- taken into our possession -- in order to be a gift given. The givER already GAVE. Now the "givEE" needs to RECEIVE the gift to make the exchange complete.

Jesus is God's gift for everyone. He came wrapped in swaddling clothes.

"And this is the testimony: God has GIVEN us eternal life, and this life is in His Son." (I John 5:11 NIV)

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free GIFT of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23 NASB)

And the most beautiful verse in the Bible:
"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!!!" (John 3:16 NIV)

For God sooooo loved that HE GAVE!!! Receive God's gift of eternal life through Jesus, His Son!!! He is the Truth Who has made the Way for your Life!!! Run to Him!!! Receive His Gift of eternal life and salvation!!! Shout Now!!!

PS: If you already have Jesus as your Savior -- I encourage you to keep on keeping on!!! And with God's help, live the living daylights out of each and every day for the Lord!!!
