"A present? For me?" That's what our three-year-old grandson asks whenever someone walks in with a wrapped box in their hands. No matter how old we are, we still like gifts that have our name on them.
That's actually the deepest meaning of Christmas - that God has a gift with your name on it. Jesus' birth announcement said, "A Savior has been born to you." Jesus came to be a Savior for you; to do the dying for all the wrong things you've ever done.
Heaven is the most expensive gift God could ever give you. It cost Him His Son! All your goodness will never be enough to buy that gift. Only Jesus' death could do that. So if you're trusting in anything other than Jesus to get you to heaven, you won't make it.
This Christmas season will be a wonderful time for you to go to Jesus' cross and say those two words, "For me!"; to invite Him to be your personal Savior from your sin. If you want that, visit needhim.org.
