Hello, God Today, this is evangelist Chris Mikkelson. I am so excited because this is the season of Christmas. It is one of my favorite seasons of the entire year. We get to celebrate the birth, the life, the death, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Oftentimes, when we think of Christmas, the first thing we think of are all the gifts we need to buy. Maybe you’re one of the people that thinks of all the gifts you are going to receive.
We love this time of year. We love giving and giving these wonderful gifts. The Bible tells us what the real reason for this season is. It’s not receiving gifts from people, but it is receiving the gift of Jesus. The Bible tells us in John 3:16 that, “God so loved the world that He gave, that He sent His only begotten son, that whosoever would believe in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life.” I want to encourage you this season, this Christmas holiday season, that you would remember that it is all about Jesus. I pray. My prayer for you this holiday season, this Christmas season, that you would give the gift of Jesus to somebody this year. Maybe a family member, maybe a friend, maybe a relative, maybe somebody at the airport as you are traveling to go see your family.
I pray you would share the message of the Gospel and share the love of Jesus. Maybe, you are watching today and you’ve never received this gift that Jesus gave to us. The greatest gift the world has ever received – being God, Himself, Jesus Christ. I want to give you that opportunity, to also receive this gift.
Would you pray with me? The Bible says that whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you are that person, and you’ve never received Christ into your heart, you’ve never received the gift of salvation, pray this prayer with me today. Say, “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to you today. A sinner in need of salvation. Lord Jesus, save me. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me of all unrighteousness. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Lord, from this day forward, I determine to follow you for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name.” If you prayed that prayer, please get in contact with us and let us know that Jesus became the gift that you received this year during the Christmas holiday season. God bless you.
