The Gift

(Luke 2:11)

God gave us a gift--the best one ever. He gave himself, in the form of a baby. The baby Jesus willingly gave up the glory of heaven to enter our world to allow us to learn how we should live.

The gift came to us in an unexpected way. People at that time looked for a Messiah to come. This savior would wear royal robes trimmed in ermine. He would be born in a palace, have a lot of wealth at his disposal, and have no need of anything. Or so they thought. Jesus was born in a stable, learned the carpenter trade from His earthly Father, had few resources, and probably made do with what he had.

God gave us a gift to adore, to follow and to serve. As we grow in Christ, let us learn to depend on the Gift we received from God.

  1. Hi Quiet Spirit -

    Thanks for the inspiring post. I'm glad the Lord came down and experienced the same challenges we have in our daily lives.

    Just think, He knew what it meant to be a refugee in a foreign land. He knew the chill of a cold stable. He knew what it was to have rags for clothes. He knew what it was like to lose a parent at a young age. I could go on and on.

    I'm glad He knows my situation and my concerns and empathizes with them.

    Susan :)


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
