This Incredible Christmas Gift
Gabriel offers to blow his horn and bring the whole sorry mess to a quick end. But God takes his trumpet away. Gabriel presses the Lord about what He's going to do. And finally the Lord answers, 'This time,' He says, 'I'm not going to send anybody. This time I'm going myself!'
And that's what we're celebrating today: God has given us the best gift He had: His own son as our guide, our brother and our friend. And He'll never take His gift back - not for all eternity.
So what are we to do with this incredible gift? Take it in, all the way inside. Silently and simply speak His name, 'Jesus,' and know that no matter what, all will be well. All will be well!
I wish you all the blessings of this wonderful gift. May your Christmas be filled with warmth, love and hope.
