The Gift of Forgiveness
Do you spend a lot of time on your Christmas gift list? Sadly, I am a procrastinator. Most of my purchases are made at big-box retailers where I can get 'er done in one afternoon. But the gifts I am proudest of are those I thought about and planned for way in advance, the one-of-a-kind presents I find at unique specialty shops or things I made by hand.

In all the busyness of buying, making, giving, and receiving this month, I invite you to pause for a minute right now and think of the great Christmas gifts that God has given to you. Like all the best gifts, they were planned way in advance, are one-of-a-kind, and were "handcrafted" personally for you.

The first of these gifts is your very salvation:  "It is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8,9).? You and I need saving, remember? Just as fetal alcohol babies are born addicted, we are born with sin and death in our very bones. Those babies can't change their condition by themselves - they are totally dependent on their medical team.

God gave you what you couldn't do for yourself. What a great Christmas gift you have in the unconditional forgiveness of your sins through the person and work of your Savior Jesus Christ! Thank you, God!
