Be the Gift!

Time is a runnin’ out folks!  Christmas is almost upon us and yet it is not too late to get that perfect for the one you love!  Best of all, it includes FREE shipping and will get here in time for Christmas.  Sound too good to be true?  It’s really not – the perfect gift for the one you love is you!  Hang in there, this isn’t some weird ego boosting scheme.  Here’s the deal: God loves you.  He gave you Jesus for Christmas which means your sins are forgiven and you are accepted by God for eternity.  Pretty cool deal right!  That is totally free – God paid the full price on that one.  So you are loved by God and you are looking for that perfect gift.  Wouldn’t it be awesome if you (being loved and forgiven by God and all) could be the kind of person the people in your life need you to be.  I can’t think of a better thing to give to others than me being a living example of what it means to be loved by God.  Think of yourself like a living Christmas Card that needs no batteries.  You can also be the ultimate gift that keeps on giving!  Lets stop thinking that we are Gods gift to the world (in the “look at me!” sense) and be people who show the world the love of God in Christ by the way we live and love!  Sounds like that Advent Conspiracy thing is still doing it’s thing.
