How to open God’s greatest gift
December 13, 2012
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I’ve told the story before of a man who was getting ready to put a sign in his yard that said “N-O-E-L” to spread some Christmas cheer. It was a cold night, a snowstorm hit, and the man was trying to put the letters up from behind instead of facing them. He fumbled and bumbled, and said some very un-Christmas-like things in the process.
He finally finished, plugged in the lights, and forgot about them. The next morning he awoke to a foot of snow on the ground. He went outside to take a look at his sign and noticed he put the letters up backwards, “L-E-O-N.” Now, his neighbor across the street was named Leon. And when he saw him fixing the sign he said, “Man, I thought that was just for me!”
When God came in Christ, He came for you. It wasn’t a mistake! It was a gift with your name on it. And the question of Christmas is whether or not we’re willing to open that gift and receive it by faith, or simply let it sit under the tree.
The greatest gift of Christmas is the gift of salvation. In fact, the very name of Jesus means, “God saves.” Receive that gift, be saved by faith, and you’ll experience eternal life!
RECEIVE GOD’S GIFT OF SALVATION BY FAITH AND YOU’LL LIVE FOREVER WITH HIM!

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
