I delight in the Christmas Season. I adorn my home with all manner of things; Christmas trees, garlands, and some wonderful Christmas decorations.  I even dress our dogs in Christmas attire!

About this time of year, we start to think about what we are going to give our family and friends. Many of you would have already done all your shopping and even have the gifts under the tree. Your children would have already let you know what they want, and you may have already given hints to your loved ones about what you would like too.

But it’s also time to seriously consider what you will give Jesus this year. He has a Christmas list – and YOU are on it! It’s HIS birthday and He knows what He wants from you. He’s not interested in anything in the stores but He wants what you’ve got in your heart. You may have things in your heart that you have hidden close to yourself for many seasons and many reasons. It’s time to give these things over to Jesus.

Jesus is Life and whatever He has, He brings to life; even the dreams that you thought were dead, the desires that you thought were no longer possible. Give them to Jesus this Christmas and watch how He brings new life to these things. Then you will be able to sing:

Jesus, Jesus
Oh what a wonderful child
Jesus, Jesus
So lowly meek and mild
New life, new hope, new joy He brings
Won’t you listen to the angels sing
Glory, glory, glory
To the New Born King!

John 10:10 I have come that you may have life and life more abundantly.
