Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you. You have found favor with God. This is the season’s greetings we would like to extend to you and yours directly from the Father’s throne of grace. The angel Gabriel brought this word to a damsel named Mary and she was no less bowled over. The same message was for us as well, just as it was for her. The Child that was to form in her womb and a Son given for the world must form in our heart, and we must give Him to all the known world. We ought to share Him, because He’s not ours alone – just as He wasn’t Mary’s alone. We must labor in birth until He’s formed in the womb of the heart of those who receive Him. We should share this Christmas gift with our kith and kin at the banqueting table, with acquaintances and strangers on any and every platform possible.
He is the Christmas present! To the hungry He’s the bread of life, to the thirsty He’s the fountain of water springing up into everlasting life, to the lost and dying He’s the way and the life, to the homeless He’s the shelter from the storms, to those who labor and are heavy-laden He’s the rest for their soul, to the seekers He’s the truth. He’s the Prince of Peace and Son of God’s love to the troubled and hating world. Share Him this Christmas; He’s the perfect present someone is looking for. The world doesn’t know Him. Share Him, give Him, preach Him.
