“How was your Christmas? What did you get?”
These 2 questions will be the ones most frequently asked of you in the aftermath of Christmas Day. Say, “Great!” Talk about your new toys. But why not then usher in the New Year by telling someone about the gift God gave you in the Christ of Christmas.
The text of 1 John 4 emphasizes the gift God has given everyone who chooses to receive it. It also provides a simple outline to guide your conversations with others about Christ.
Christmas may have come and gone, but it is not to late for you to tell others of Jesus in ways that authenticate God's deep love for you and them. Most people know of the Christ in the manger. Today you could tell another the rest of the story – that of His life, death and resurrection.
Re-gift it. Rewrap it. Use the same ribbon and bow. It's okay.
It is a type of re-gifting God would want you to do.
Taking time to meditate on the many names of Jesus can enrich your worship.
Jesus, our Alpha and Omega, existed before Creation and will return to rule forever. He is the consistency our hearts long for.
When anxiousness or discouragement creeps in, I try to remind myself that rescue is just around the corner.
