God’s love fills a need in our lives

 

The Christmas season is almost here and have you finished your gift buying yet? Let’s look at the different reasons that we purchase what we do for that special person.

Sometimes we select a gift that is really a necessity in the life of the recipient. We know that they need something and it just seems like the giving thing to do is to give them something that they really need and can’t afford or can’t purchase for some reason. You know they will enjoy this gift and it will fill a very big need in their lives.

Another reason that we select something is that it will be a luxury for the person receiving the gift. The luxury gift is a special way of showing that person that they are a luxury in your life and you enjoy every minute of their being part of your daily life. Giving a luxury will always be a joy to you and to the one receiving it.

And sometimes we just give a gift because of the vast love that we have for that person. We select something that will show that love and know that every time they enjoy the gift, they will be filled with love and you will always be filled with the joy of giving. Now let’s look to the most important gift that any of us ever receive. We enjoy the Christmas season and thinking of the gift that God sent to us at this time of year. He gave His only Son to us and we rejoice in the knowledge of His gift. Let’s look at that gift. It fills a necessity in our lives. We can’t even begin to give ourselves this gift; it is a gift from God and without it we would be doomed. Let’s rejoice in His giving this wonderful necessity in our daily lives.

And this gift is also a luxury! God gives way beyond anything that we can think or comprehend. The gift of His Son is such a luxury; let’s rejoice every day with this wonderful gift. And the gift was given in love. A love that we can only begin to comprehend, but we can enjoy and live in His presence because of this gift given in love.

Let’s look to the scripture that was probably the first one that we learned, “For God so loved ______ (fill in your name) that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whoever (again list your name) believeth will never perish but have eternal or everlasting life.” This is a gift that is a necessity in our lives. It is a luxury and it was given in a love that is way beyond our understanding, but we can rejoice in the beautiful gift.

“This is love; not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins”! John 4:10. He gave us a necessity gift, a luxury gift, and a gift of love!

Let’s turn to Him, thanking God for the love that filled that necessity. We can’t make it on our own. Let’s thank Him for the luxury gift, again something that we can’t do on our own. And let’s always thank Him for the love that He bestows on us each day. Merry CHRISTmas.
