The Gift

December 20, 2012

We refer to Christmas as the season of giving. Most of us try hard to find gifts that friends and family will like, but not all gifts are equal. Some gifts come with a subtle hint, like an exercise machine or a book about weight loss. Other gifts are those that the giver really wants for himself. But the best gifts are those that come from someone who loves us and knows what we want.

Last Christmas, my pastor, Jim Samra, challenged us to think about Christ’s coming in another way. We know that Jesus was God’s perfect gift to us (Rom. 6:23), but Pastor Jim added another thought. He said that His coming to earth could also be looked at as a gift that Jesus gave to His Father. Jesus loved His Father and knew that what He wanted more than anything else was for us, His creation, to be reconciled to Him. Through His incarnation, Jesus made it possible for us to be a holy and blameless present to God (Col. 1:22).

Thinking of ourselves as a gift to God makes us want to be a present worth the cost, “fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (v.10).

Dear Lord, from whom all blessings flow,
Most precious gifts dost Thou bestow;
So truly faithful may I be
As Thou art gracious unto me. —Roworth
God’s highest Gift should awaken our deepest gratitude.

Read: Colossians 1:19-27

And you . . . He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight. —Colossians 1:21-22
Bible in a Year:
1 Peter 1-2

I still have one prodigy on Wednesday. The other two have moved to different days, and i have two very new, very young (preschool!) piano students.

The Wednesday Prodigy, however, is learning the guitar solos from Hotel California and Brown Eyed Girl.

I kid you not.

An uneventful commute indeed.

There are wrecks all over here!

People seem to be distracted for whatever reason.

Dang...I can't even imagine such cold!

This morning I awoke & the the t-stat read 72*’s.

I still haven't turned on the heat cuz I won't until it hits the 60’s in the house.

Christmas is wearing me out!:)

I feel for you, Connie – mercury in the low 70’s in Arizona is downright unnatural! Keep warm – toss another log on the fire, sit back with a nice glass of wine, and bask in the ambience of your home place.

Just got home...hair cut, then to Costco to drop off an empty ink cartridge. My fingers can barely type they are so cold.

I’m off tomorrow, but parental appointments at 10:30a, 11:40a, and 2p...hoping to get the electric folks to come somewhere in there to fix the fried electrical strip and whatever caused it.

Busy, busy day.

Glad you could avoid all the wrecks...lots here with slipping and sliding. Some people are too dumb to slow down.
