Greetings and Felicitations,
Many times the mere mention of a person’s name will elicit a joyful response in his heart. Many times a simple Thank You, or a You Are Welcome, will do the same. Many times a little gift given unasked will lighten a person’s day.
There have been times where a person has given his life for another’s, but that sacrifice is not received with joy, but with apathy. This is tragic, but it is true.
Over two thousand years ago, a great gift was made. It was a greater gift than even the gift of life itself, which had been given around four thousand years earlier. God came in human form to walk among us. He taught us many things and gave us hope.
Yet although this gift was great, it was only the prelude to the greatest gift of all. Christ, the Son of God, gave His life to us. Sacrificing Himself for our sakes, He hung on a cross in our place. Yet, all too often, we neglect to even thank Him.
I pray that this Christmas season you will think on what we are remembering and celebrating: the coming of Christ, God’s gift, and also Christ’s subsequent gift to us: His life, for our liberty.
May God bless and keep you on this festive day for His glory!
With joy and peace in Christ,
Jay Lauser aka Sir Emeth Mimetes
