“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
The ultimate PRESENT is the PRESENCE of Jesus. It’s a gift that we can’t earn and one that we don’t deserve. Each of us, if given what we fully deserve, would find ourselves eternally separated from God. But God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to live perfectly, die sacrificially, and rise bodily so that we can live forever with Him.
As Christmas shifts to the rearview mirror of your mind, make sure that you don’t lose focus of what this season means. Instead, live a life that reflects God’s plan. And use each day as an opportunity to thank Him and to show others the power of the ultimate present.
Thank God for His ultimate present, which is His presence. Pray for chances each day to show others the power and potential of that gift.
Write down on a piece of paper, “The ultimate PRESENT is the PRESENCE of Christ!” Post it somewhere prominent so that you continually stay focused on the meaning of Christmas!
