Years ago I wanted to do a countdown to Christmas that reflected Jesus with my son. There are plenty of countdowns available but I wanted something unique. I came up with a solution, shared it with my son and away we went shopping. Together we purchased a little wooden box and decorated it. Inside it held gifts that I had wrapped for him to open up each day until Christmas day. Each gift revealed a Good & Perfect Gift from God. Now its your turn to unwrap a gift from now through Christmas Eve.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 NIV
Are you ready to receive your gift for Today?
The Christmas season has just started and you just noticed a gift sitting on the coffee table wrapped in glistening gold paper. “Where did that come from?” you ask yourself. With the curiosity of a child, you walk over to examine it further only to discover the gift tag bears your name. You take it over to your most comfortable chair and begin to unwrap carefully, revealing its contents. Here laying in your hands is a crown of gold laden with jewels. The tag attached on one side reads “The Crown of Life”. On the opposite side reads:
“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:12 NIV
Can you imagine what it will be like to receive this perfect gift when you get to heaven? What wonderful treasures we will have reserved and waiting for us in heaven. All because God loved us so much He sent His son to be born in a manger. The reason we are celebrating this Christmas season.
I have a season of gifts to share with you from God and they are available To All Who Will Receive! Don’t forget to stop to see what these gift will be.
In His Love, Crisi
