What Will You Give?
We love Christmas and know the story of Jesus by heart. Therefore, we should allow Christmas to challenge our hearts.
Three wise men visited the Baby Christ and presented gifts. Why did they present gifts?
They gave because they were following the custom of presenting gifts to royalty. They acknowledged Christ as ruler of their lives.
Is Christ ruler of your life? Romans 14:8-9 reads, “For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's”. If we are the Lord’s, then He is our King and ruler of our lives. So, what gifts have you given Him?
We pray all the time asking God for things. But what have we given Him? He gave us life, love, hope, redemption, mercy and grace. What have we given Him? All of us have gifts we can give God. So, instead of always asking what God can give us, instead ask what we can give Him. Our lives? Our praise? Our time? What will you give?
