THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Itís not about a tree with glitter.
Itís not about the presents.
Itís all about His presence!
And, itís about a tree on a hill!
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for he shall save his people from their sins.
The first CHRISTmas present is Godís presence in the world.
He Who created all things by the power of simply speaking His Word is
"wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger!" (Lk 2:12)
His Name is called JESUS.
It comes from the Greek Iesous (ee-ay-sooce'),
which is a variant form of the Hebrew Yehowshuwa` (Yeh-ho-shoo'-ah).
And the meaning of those names are SAVIOR!
God's LOVE sent "His Only begotten Son" to die on the cross for our sakes!
Godís love is GIVING love!
Through this FIRST gift of His presence, He gives all other gifts of love.
From now to the day of CHRISTmas, we will be discussing some of Godís gifts.
Have you received the gift of His presence, so that you can receive the other
presents He offers?
