And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:11
There are many ways to GIVE Jesus the praise of our love, as He readies us to welcome JOY. He humbles our hearts for PEACE that passes all understanding and helps us welcome seasons of HOPE. He creates desire for us to walk closer to Him and feel the LOVE of His presence.
Oh, how we need a living relationship with the One who helps us RECEIVE the fullness of amazing grace. The Christmas season is a perfect time to examine our lives and become aware of what to GIVE the King of Kings to show our appreciation.
The wise men traveled and found the Christ Child. They shared their gifts and treasures. Sometimes we’re not sure what to offer Jesus. He longs for us to love Him with a servant's heart and be a reflection of light so others will clearly see how to welcome the glory of Christmas.
Jesus desires the LOVE of a humbled heart as we find PEACE from surrender. He longs for us to remember HE is the best GIFT of Christmas. What can we offer Him? A willingness to welcome HOPE, PEACE, MERCY, COMPASSION, KINDNESS, GRACE, FORGIVENESS and JOY in the promise of what will be provided as we faithfully believe.
Jesus is deserving of so much more than mere morsels love as we treasure the gifts that are stored in our souls. God sent His Son to save us! He will reward our praise as we develop a better understanding of what it means to follow Him, RECEIVE the gifts of greatness and never be afraid to share the LOVE of a grateful heart.
Dear God, Thank you for the love of Christ. Help us surrender what is holding us back from walking in fullness EVERY day of our lives. We will make room for Jesus and welcome what He places in our hearts. Thank you for giving us JOY as we discover what it means to GIVE from a humbled heart. Prepare us to receive Your presence and find PEACE in this season of HOPE. Thank you for helping us walk in truth as we learn to love You even more. Amen
