And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:9-10
So many people are out shopping for the ‘perfect’ gift for their friend or loved one. But do you know that the only perfect gift is the Son of God who was given to restore our broken relationship with God? That is a gift that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving over and over again.
It has taken me from a pit and transferred me to His palace. It’s kept life interesting for sure. I don’t believe I’ve ever been bored or lonely as long as I’ve kept myself in His presence. As David said in Psalm 23; Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Now please don’t get me wrong. God is absolutely not a genie. You can’t make a wish and get it. He won’t wave a wand and make your problems go away. He said He’d never leave you, ever. He also said to seek Him with all your heart, soul and mind and you will find Him, that’s all the treasure you need. With Him we are rich in ways the world will never understand.
What a perfect Christmas gift.
From our home to yours,
Sandy and Wally G
