The gift

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

With only a few weeks left to go until Christmas Day, how are you getting on with your Christmas shopping?

Trying to find the perfect gift for everyone can be stressful, and challenging, but to see the delight and happiness on others faces when you see them open their gifts on Christmas Day, and find just what they wanted, can be the best feeling.

What is the best gift you’ve ever received as a Christmas present?

For each of us, the best gift we could ever receive is from God. So this Christmas accept the greatest gift of all into your heart, the gift of Jesus.

In every star we see
and all the songs we sing
Of shepherds on a hillside,
of goodwill and peace.
The lights on every tree
and all the gifts we bring
In every part of Christmas
we'll see our King.

For He is the light
that shines from the star,
He is the shepherd
watching over us all.
And He is the peace
that wise men still seek.
A Saviour born that we might live
He is the gift.

Hope and joy and strength
He offers all our days,
Pure and perfect blessings
all wrapped in His grace.
And when the lights come down
the moments disappear
But He who gives us everything
will still be here.

For He is the light
that shines from the star,
He is the shepherd
watching over us all.
And He is the peace
that wise men still seek.
A Saviour born that we might live
He is the gift.

A Saviour born that we might live
He is the gift.

He is the gift by fear not – believe only
