Families celebrate many traditions during Christmastime; the lights, the tree, the ornaments, the candies, and treats. All of these are traditions that point us back to a common belief that Jesus is the reason for the season. In fact, opening gifts is a tradition that varies around the world. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? Do you put them under the tree or hide them in the branches? Are they wrapped or unwrapped? No matter what, the most important thing is that the gift is opened. Imagine spending your time, your money and thought into the perfect gift for someone and they refuse to open it. God gave the gift of His Son, Jesus to you. There is nothing that would please God more this Christmas than if you would open the gift He has given you.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The exciting thing about accepting God’s free gift of Jesus is you don’t have to wait until Christmas.
