Take Time to Thank Him


Well, it’s Christmas time again. I am sure that everyone including my family has been busy preparing for the season. We always start early in the year preparing for everyone’s gifts. We want to make sure that each person gets a special gift. We all put a lot of time, money, and effort into Christmas.

However, I wonder how much time and effort we put into thanking the good Lord for the greatest gift of all. The Lord gave us all His Son to pay our sin debt. From the beginning of time, God planned to send Jesus into the world to “save His people from their sins.”

John 3:16 NASB says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” God’s love for us is unconditional love. It is perfect love. Jesus is by far the best gift ever.

I just want to take this time to urge you to spend time with the Lord this season. Take time to thank Him for His Son and His death on the cross to save us. I want to ask you to praise God for all that He has done for you and I. We can never repay Him, but we can love Him and praise Him and serve Him. I pray that you have a Merry Christmas. Please take the time to praise and worship the Lord. Please thank Him for Jesus!
