Christmas is a time when many of us think about giving and receiving gifts. Often it’s easy to get more concerned with the lists of presents to buy and who’ll like what than having any time to think about the best gift that comes at Christmas.
When Jesus came to earth some 2000 years ago, God gave us the greatest gift we could ever ask for- himself!
The gift that God gave us, Jesus Christ, his own son, is not just any gift though. We have been given a gift that keeps on giving. Not only do we remember that God turned up into our world at Christmas time, we also remember what he has done for us.
Jesus Christ- God’s gift to humanity- came so that we could be brought close to God. He was born as a baby, but he died an untimely death as a man, where he paid the price of sin for us.
Ever since then, the gift- Jesus Christ- has kept on giving, offering eternal life to all who will believe in him.
The question is- have you received the ultimate gift this Christmas?
Join us this Sunday at 9:30am at Bendigo South East College, Ellis St.
