A giftologist -- that's what each member of our family has become.
Every Christmas, each one seems to find the gift that is exactly what the person needs ... and they sacrifice to get it. God's like that. On His gift is a little sticker that says "from God" and "to" -- there's your name. What you need most was very expensive -- but He loves you so much that He went ahead and bought it.
In God's own words from the Bible, "The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Ultimate security -- knowing for sure you'll to heaven when you die. Heaven's a gift you accept -- not something you earn with all your religion and goodness. It was paid for by Someone else -- by Jesus on His cross, dying the death penalty for your sins. Knowing where you'll be forever -- now that is "peace on earth."
