“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16 NKJV
Think about this: whether it’s the best thing you’ve ever eaten, an awesome movie you just saw, a compelling book you just couldn’t put down, a great gift you received, or landing your dream job— when something amazing happens, the first thing we usually want to do is share it with others! Especially, when such good news came to us without any strings attached.
Christmas is the celebration of the greatest news humanity has ever received: the birth of Jesus because of love. But unlike whatever piece of exciting news you have that likely only impacts you or some people, the coming of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, is good news for everyone!
It’s the kind of news we should be unashamedly excited to share with every person we encounter. No news should travel faster than the good news that God has made a way for us to be restored to a right relationship with Him, redeemed of our sins, and received into His family as children.
We all know how much gifting is emphasized in this season. Well, the good news is that we received the best gift of all. This is the best gift we could ever receive— eternal life through Jesus!
As believers, we’ve received a gift that will keep on giving forever— a perfect gift that will never get old, never break, never wear out, never be empty, and will never lose its value; the greatest gift the world has ever known.
So during Christmas, as you package the finest gifts to share with family and friends, don’t forget to share the best gift a man could ever receive. Share this good news about Christ.
