All I Want For Christmas

A Christmas Wish

“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (sacrifice) for our sins” (1 John 4:10).

The Lord has blessed us with the gift of His Son and we celebrate that gift on Christmas each year. The Lord left His home in Glory to live among us and teach us the things of God. But the reason He came was the cross. He came to die for us on that cross to pay the sin debt. Christmas is a reminder of the Lord’s great love for us in coming and sacrificing His life – all for us.

For those of us that know the Lord and truly understand the meaning of Christmas; it is our heart’s desire for all those that have not given their heart to the Lord to do so this Christmas. The best gift anyone could receive at Christmas is to come to understand the full meaning of His coming. A verse of scripture familiar to most sums it up perfectly:

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have Everlasting Life” (John 3:16).

The Lord’s gift to us of His Son cost Him greatly. His love for us sent His Son to the Cross at Calvary so that we might be forgiven and receive Eternal Life. He has done it all. He comes to each of our hearts by the way of the Holy Spirit that we might receive Him and all the goodness of God by way of His Grace. Grace that could only come to us by way of His Son and what He accomplished at the cross. The Lord calls out to all those that will hear:

“Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door (of our heart), and knock (patiently waiting): if any man hears My voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and I will sup (fellowship) with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).

The above scripture was written to the church in Laodicea which many scholars say not only represents the church of that time but also represents the end-time church that has grown cold toward the Lord. I believe it speaks both to the part of the end-time church that has lost its way and to all those who do not know the Lord. He stands ready to forgive and embrace all those who will call upon His Name this Christmas. The Word of God makes this very clear in the following verse:

“For whosoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

It is a wonderful gift the Lord has given us. This gift that we celebrate and honor at Christmas is a display of His great love for us. This gift that cost the Lord so much to give us is for whomsoever will come to the Lord and receive of the Grace given us due to Calvary. It is my wish, my prayer, and the prayer of all those that know the Lord and have experienced His great love for us; that those that do not know this wonderful life He offers us would come to Him this Christmas.

All I want for Christmas is for God’s love to be spread abroad in the hearts of all those that have not experienced His great love. As the Apostle Peter tells us: the result of coming to the Lord is “Joy unspeakable and full of Glory.” The life of faith is an exciting life; one of fellowship with the One Who loved us and proved that love at Calvary. He waits at the door of our hearts. Blessed are those that receive Him. If you do not know the Lord; make this Christmas one you will never forget as you experience the love God has for you!

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His Shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

Always Rember,

God Loves You!
