Christmas is just around the corner!  People are out buying gifts for their families, friends and for those who are needy.  These gifts provide joy to those who give them and happiness to those who receive them.  They demonstrate our love for those for whom we buy the gifts.

However, there is a greater Gift, one that cannot be purchased in stores or on-line.

It is the greatest Gift ever.  The Gift from God to us – His Son Jesus Christ.  We commemorate His birth this month.

Christmas!  What a wonderful time for celebration!  Christ was born, lived, taught, performed miracles, sacrificed, atoned, died and was resurrected for us-all in the name of God, our Heavenly Father.  Without Him we would be lost.  With Him we can have everlasting life.  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 KJV).

I recommend to you three video clips to put the Christmas season into perspective.  They may be seen at the following Web sites:

1)       The first may be seen at christmas.mormon.org and is entitled, He is the gift

The other two videos may be seen at biblevideos.org, clicking on View All, and scrolling down to:

2)       The Nativity (Luke 1:26-38; 2:1-19: Matthew 1:20-21), and

3)       Glad Tidings of Great Joy: The Birth of Jesus Christ

I hope you find these messages to be spiritual and uplifting.  If you would like to share the Utube video clip He is the gift with friends through social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., you may do so with the hashtag, #ShareTheGift.

 May your Christmas be wonderful this year.  Enjoy the season!
