It's Jesus' Birthday! Part 2: The Bringing of the Gifts


Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren

to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133:1







Life Question: What gifts of yourselves will you give

to Jesus for his birthday?







As the biblical story is told, the wise men, in search of Jesus Christ,

came bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh gifts fit for a

king! Now I know what you're all saying, "what can I give to

Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, King of Kings, the creator of life

itself and the earth upon which I live???"

WELL! I'LL TELL YOU WHAT YOU GIVE HIM!You start by giving him

your open mind, your open heart and greeting him with an open

door! You give him the gift of your hospitality by making him not

just a guest in your house, but a part of the family! Don't stop at

that. Next, you invite him to sit with you and introduce Jesus to

everyone who is present with you. Share your joys and hardships

with him, share your laughter and tears, he is the Father of all of us

and he wants to hear about the lives of his children!

Don't stop there! Share with him your dreams, desires, goals

and yes, even your frustrations.....Jesus knows that our lives on

Earth are not easy ones, nor is the road some of us are traveling

easy to navigate, he wants us to trust him in all things that happen

in our lives,not just when our lives are peaches and cream!

Sit with him, give him your time and attention, he wants to

tell you about himself and his life, death and resurrection.

LET HIM DO THAT! You can do that by opening yourself up

to him in prayer and in reading His Word.....invite others to

do the same with you! The more the merrier(I'd like to think

Jesus would say that!)!

The other gifts you bring for our Lord and Savior are the BIGGIES!

Give him your love, your trust, your faith, your hands(to put in

the hand of Jesus), your feet(to have him show you where the

good way is and how to walk in it) and your eyes(so you can see

what a life with him will be for you!)

Well! I know you are just itching for more after this, but I can't let

the cat out of the bag just yet.....it would ruin the fun for me(as well

as the surprise)!



Blessings,

Liz Ciccone
