FROM YOUR HEART
“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.”
Matthew 2:11 KJV
Christmas is next month and whatever gifts you give your family and friends give from your heart. That is what God did for us. He gave from His heart. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time. Shut off the television and spend time with your family. Pick up the telephone and call someone who needs encouragement. The greatest gift we can give Jesus is our heart. If you haven’t invited Jesus into your heart, do it now.
We read in the Bible “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20). Please don’t keep Jesus standing at the door of your heart. Say yes to Jesus today before it is too late.
