What do you want to give to Jesus this Christmas?
I know…but it’s really not that far away!
This year I’ve been good and started shopping like 6 months ago for the kids and now that it’s almost December I know and have, mostly, what I’m going to give them.
What do you want to give to Jesus this Christmas? People will answer that differently, like: your heart, your time, your possessions. But Jesus already has all of those things whether we acknowledge it or not so we can’t actually give them to Jesus.
This Christmas, we don’t have anything to give to Jesus. But what we do have is what Jesus has given to us.
That is the better question. What will you do with what Jesus has given to you. Yes, Jesus has given you everything, from your very life to the gifts and talents you have. It is all from Jesus.
So what will you do with what Jesus has given you? Realize that when Jesus asks you to use his gifts, it is often through his church and God’s people. When this happens we get nervous and think we don’t have anything to give or we’re not good enough to do that work. But all that Jesus is asking for through His Church is only what He has already given to you to use. If Jesus has given it to you it is already, it is all that you need to do what He asks you to do.
This Christmas listen to what Jesus is asking, he is only asking for you to use what he has already given you and that is something we can give to Jesus this Christmas.
