2 CORINTHIANS 9:16 - THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS GIFT

It’s All About Jesus #1

Think! What is the greatest Christmas gift any individual or individuals ever gave you? For me, it was when our children arranged for us to take a missions trip to Suriname South America to see our friends, John and Marilyn Rice.

Think! What is the greatest Christmas gift you ever gave someone? For me, I think it was when I hired our daughter Donna to make a quilt for Dottie for our bed.

The title of this message is “The Greatest Christmas Gift”. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the greatest Christmas gift ever given was on the first Christmas when God gave us His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

I don’t think that any of us can fathom was a remarkable gift this was and is! 2 Corinthians 9:16 says – “Thanks be unto God for his indescribable (“unspeakable”, “inexpressible”) gift!” God’s gift of His Son is so awesome it’s beyond words.

Although we can’t begin to describe how great this gift us, we need to attempt to give you an idea of what this gift entails.

GOD GAVE HIS SON: TO INVADE – Matthew 1:18-25 “God with us”

Think of the sacrifice Jesus made to leave Heaven’s glory, voluntarily restrict the use of his attributes and be subject to the confines of a human body.

Think of the sacrifice God made in allowing His Son to be subject to all the misunderstanding, ignorance and abuse He would face.  

GOD GAVE HIS SON: TO INTERACT – John 1:1-5, 14

In a family, with disciples, with the people of Israel, with ignorance on the religious level. He interacted with miracles and teaching that proved His deity.

All around Him, He dealt with sinful people who needed help with their sins, and didn’t know it.

GOD GAVE HIS SON: TO INTERFERE – 2 Corinthians 5:21,                1 Peter 2:21-25, Acts 3:13-15

GOD GAVE HIS SON: TO INVITE – John 8:12,

Matthew 11:28-30, Revelation 22:17

GOD GAVE HIS SON: TO INTERCEDE – Hebrews 7:24-27

The greatest gift we can give is to invade, to interact, to interfere, to invite, to intercede for those who don’t know Him.
