For You!

Gift From God

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace….” (Isaiah 9:6 KJV)

How much do you love you?

No! I mean, how far would you actually go to save yourself from yourself?

  • Would you give up ‘glory’ ……..for you?
  • Would you live in the ‘boondocks’ as a pauper…… for you?
  • Would you live as an under-appreciated ‘nobody’ in a ‘foreign’ land…….in order to save yourself from yourself?
  • Would you take the blame for something that you didn’t do, to save you from you?

Well Jesus did!……..for you!

  • HE gave up Glory……for you!
    • God Incarnate,
    • God ‘wrapped in flesh’,
    • Jesus Christ
      • ……came down to earth to live among us……because you’re worth it!

“…And they will call Him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us’….” (Matthew 1: 23 NLT)

SO….

  • HE walked with us and talked with us;
  • HE ate with us and drank with us;
  • HE mourned  with us and suffered for us!
  • HE was beaten for us!
    • until HIS skin was torn and shredded, .…..like the wrapping paper on our Christmas presents!

THEN….

  • He died for us!………because we’re worth it!

“You realize that He came to eradicate sins, that there is not the slightest bit of sin in Him…” (1 John 3:5 VOICE)

BEFORE…..

He returned to Glory!

SO THAT……

  • When we cry to HIM in Glory,
    • He can relate to us!

SO THAT….

  • When the enemy says I’ve got him/her,
    • HE can say…..“Oh no! I don’t think so!”
      • I have already paid the price for him/her!
      • He/She is off limits!

Life Application

So this Christmas, as you rip the wrapping off of your gifts……

  • THANK HIM for gifting HIMSELF to you!……because HE thought you’re worth it!

BECAUSE……..

That Beloved,

  • is the Reason for the Season!
    • The sacrifice that JESUS made for you, so that you might be free!

What a gift!

  • And all because you’re worth it!

Merry Christmas to You and Yours!

the greatest gift

Peace & Love,

Emma B
